Jishin Itusmo Project
The book of Jishin Itusmo Project that was published after the Great Hanshin-Awaji Earthquake says that being unable to take advantage of nature's blessings, people are placed in "a more inconvenient and uneasier situation than primitive times" in the event of a major disaster in urban concreted areas where the whole life is dependent on the distribution system. It also says that if you greet with your neighbors every day, you will soon know who is missing, which was "a major disaster prevention." From "Jishin Itusmo Notes" (supervised by Tomohide Atsumi).
