Various disaster prevention measures, including against tsunamis, have been put in place to make Daiba, Aomi and Ariake 'disaster resistant areas' and ensure your safety. Multipurpose underground utility conduits are built to withstand earthquakes of similar magnitude as the Great Kanto Earthquake, and house all of the city's essential infrastructure, such as water, sewage, electricity, gas and telecommunication and internet cables.
In addition to the measures against natural disasters, measures to prevent the spread of infectious diseases have also recently been enhanced, with some companies having obtained international standards for infection control measures.
