Tsunami, lessons learnt from Japanese story: inamura no hi (Hindi for children)


""Inamura no Hi"" means fire of rice sheaves. ""Inamura no Hi"" is a story of a man who noticed a precursor of a large tsunami at the earliest stage and led village inhabitants to a high ground by burning harvested rice sheaves. This story was based on a true story at the time of Ansei-Nankai Tsunami (1854), which claimed around 3,000 lives in the coastal areas of Western Japan. Asian Disaster Reduction Center (ADRC) developed Tsunami educational materials with basic knowledge of Tsunami in 8 countries, using ""Inamura no Hi"" story, funded by the Government of Japan. ""Inamura no Hi"" booklets have been produced in 9 languages in 8 countries, in collaboration with the members, belonging to the Asian Disaster Reduction and Response Network (ADRRN), a network of NGOs for disaster reduction and response in the Asian region. They distributed 1,000 copies of adult version and 1,000 copies of children version in each country.
