There is a lot of information online about disaster preparedness but none of that does any good if the power goes out! That’s why we’ve created a Disaster Preparedness Booklet.

We have distilled many of our important points into a booklet that can be printed out to fit in a drawer or bag. Please click the download link at the bottom of this page.

Information inside

  • Contact information and places to write down important contact numbers
  • Information on the various natural disasters that can occur in Iwate
  • Stockpile and supply kit checklist
  • How to evacuate, and advice for living in an evacuation shelter
  • Useful phrases
  • Weather advisories and warnings in English and Japanese
  • Instructions on how to call emergency services (119 and 110)


If your printer can print double-sided, you can print this PDF in a booklet form. Use A4 size paper and select the short edge option to print correctly.
