In order to prevent the spread of coronavirus (COVID-19), various facilities around Tokyo may change their operating days or hours. In addition, some events may be canceled or postponed. Please check official facility or event websites for the latest updates and information.
As a country prone to natural disasters, Japan makes disaster prevention and response a priority. The sprawling Tokyo Rinkai Disaster Prevention Park is home to the functioning headquarters of the disaster strategy response unit serving the Tokyo metropolitan area.
The park has a visitor center, where you will be able to join a tour that includes a simulation of a large-scale earthquake in an urban setting. You'll learn how to survive in the first crucial hours following a disaster, with interactive quizzes to test your knowledge.
For updated information on opening hours, closings, prices, and more, please check the official website or ask the facility directly.
