    Very good question, and sadly I don't. I'm assuming it will be the nearest school ground or park. I think it's written in all the stuff I got from city office when I moved to my current 'hood'.

    In our area everyone is sent a map of the neighborhood each year and it shows the shelters. It also notes areas prone to flooding. I don't think all areas have this but it's really convenient so I think they should.

    Even if you are in an unfamiliar area, you can look around for signs (see below). this one is for a tsunami zone, but they are always designed in green with a little man running. How much foreign language they have depends on the municipality, but they often include an arrow or a map.

    Yes, ours is the local Junior High School. Whenever we visit somewhere I look for information on the nearest evacuation center there too.

    Very good question. Yes. Actually it is not so difficult to know the shelter location in your area. If signs of shelter is not available (like in my area), you can searched it in your area's website. I know usually it is Japanese only, but you can see at least the map and prediction of maximum water level (in case of tsunami). Simply google for your area and hazard map, then you should get the hazard map you are looking for. For example if you are living in Yokohama, search for 横浜市 ハザードマップ (yokohamashi haza-do mappu), then hazard map is available in the following link: http://www.city.yokohama.lg.jp/somu/org/kikikanri/flood-hmap/

Akita/Niigata in March

I´m planing to visit the Akita and Niigata prefecture at the end of March. What about the weather during that season? Is it still snowing? If yes how about the train situation? I guess because those prefectures are used to snow there will be no problem... Some experience of people living in these areas will be helpful!
