    Happy New Year!

    As you maybe be aware, a major earthquake with a seismic intensity of 7 struck the Noto Peninsula area on January 1 (Mon.).  Osaka also experienced a tremor with an intensity of 4, which might have been surprising for you. Additionally, some of you may have experienced the earthquake outside of Osaka. We genuinely hope that everyone is safe and sound.

    Please refer to the following links that may help you gather information on earthquakes and learn about countermeasures.
