- 1F Tokyo earthquake simulation seventy-two hour tour
- Experience-learning Facility
It is said that organized rescue efforts are
usually performed seventy-two hours after an
earthquake occurs. So, how would you survive
during those seventy-two hours when rescue
is difficult? This tour allows you to
experience the flow of events starting with the
development of an earthquake disaster in the
Tokyo Metropolitan Area and ending with evacuation.
An earthquake measuring upper 6 on the Japan Meteorological Agency seismic intensity scale hits while you are descending in an elevator at a train station building. The floor shakes and the elevator screeches to an emergency stop.
After getting out of the elevator, you walk down a dim maintenance corridor with no electricity. Visitors to the facility follow evacuation lights and broadcasted emergency guidance in search of the exit.
In a diorama where you experience repeated aftershocks through sound, lighting, and imagery, you will make your way to an evacuation area while asking a quiz with portable game machine. At the Cinema Station, you will experience a simulation of an earthquake centered under Tokyo through computer generated imagery.
You've escaped the dangerous urban area and have reached a safe evacuation site. While viewing a display of disaster relief storehouses and tents, you will learn how to survive during emergency situations. You will also be notified of quiz results.
