Schoolchildren practising the earthquake drill: Tokyo

The 1st of September is the anniversary of the 1923 Great Kanto Earthquake and every year every public institution practices their earthquake drill. At school all the kids wear a "bousaizukin' [ ぼうさいずきん] or a piece of protective, padded headwear to limit any head injuries in the event of falling objects. They look kind of cute too. I tried Ami's on after the drill. But no one was around get a photo of that!

We've recently had quite a few sizeable tremors, ranging from 4.1 to 6.5

Preparedness helps....
