Support for those returning home on foot

Final update date January 16, 2019

Support by disaster return support stations

Nine prefectures have agreements with convenience stores, family restaurants, gas stations, etc. for those who return home on foot in the event of a disaster. These stores can use toilets and tap water, as well as provide road traffic information to the extent possible.
Stores that agree with the agreement are called "Disaster Return Home Support Stations" or "Disaster Walk Return Home Support Stations", and special stickers are posted at locations that are easy for users to see, such as the entrance of stores.
