    Be very careful when driving in Ibaraki, Japan because the streets are very tiny and that on school days, the small children are walking and or biking.

    Usually, children in Ibaraki, Japan are trained to go to their schools by themselves. The parents don't drive them to their schools. There are also no school buses to bring them to school.

    emergency calls

    by solo_mc Written Jul 1, 2003

    If you need to call an ambulance or the firefighters, call 119. Most of the time, the ambulance or the firefighters will arrive within five minutes, but if you are calling from a mobile phone, the call must be re-routed and they will spend more time trying to locate you. Besides, the call may be interrupted as they always get interrupted in those `*=~@ mobiles.
    So, whenever it is posible call from a "earthly" telephone.

    There are earthquakes along the whole country, but if you happen to be near the coast when you feel an earthquake RUN, please, for your life RUN to a high place. The Tsunami is like the souffle, it does not wait for the king. If you are driving, it is highly recommended to listen to the radio instead of CD or tapes. Information may save your life.
