Introducing the Safety Tips App!

Safety Tips is a free app that that shares information and alerts about disasters for international travelers in Japan. It was launched in October 2014 by the Japan Tourism Agency with the intent of providing visitors with a sense of security as they travel around Japan, which experiences many natural disasters every year. This app delivers push notifications of Earthquake Early Warnings, Tsunami Warnings, Special Weather Alerts, and more. It also provides a flowchart that shows what evacuation actions are required for the given situation, communication cards which can be shown to people to ask for information, and links to websites that provide critical information in the case of an emergency. (The app supports 14 languages.)
