“Safety Tips” Disaster Information App

What Is “Safety Tips”?

Safety Tips is an app designed for foreign tourists that has been around since October 2014. Managed by the Japan Tourism Agency, the app provides information when a disaster strikes so that tourists who visit Japan can enjoy their travels with peace of mind. Safety Tips is available in five languages (English, traditional and simplified Chinese, Korean and Japanese), and can provide push notification of emergency warnings such as heavy rain, earthquakes, tsunami, storms and volcanic eruptions in Japan. The app also has an evacuation flowchart that shows evacuation procedures suitable for the surrounding conditions; a communication card to obtain information from the people around you; and a list of links that provide the information you need in an emergency.

For people who live in Shinjuku City, this app can be used as a source of multilingual information during a disaster.
