[1] Reports on Tohoku and Niigata Study Trip

(1) Mr. Jonatan ARREOLA MANZANO  (Mexico, Seismology Course)

The human beings or technology cannot avoid the occurrence of natural
hazards (earthquakes, tsunamis, volcanoes, typhoon, landslides, floods,
droughts, among others), the occurrence of these is a sign that Earth is
a living and dynamic planet.

                             Please see the Newsletter attached on page 1.

      (2)Mr. Leonardo Alberto ALVARADO GARCIA
(Ecuador,Tsunami Disaster Mitigation  Course)

Before coming to Japan, I had only seen tsunami videos and read stories on
 the internet, and had no way to imagine what it feels like to go through such
 a hard experience. After this study trip, I feel more compassionate towards
those who died and lost their loved ones in the past.

      (3) Mr. Raouf BENCHARIF  (Algeria, Earthquake Engineering Course)

Japan has a long history of great earthquakes and the highest frequency of
tsunamis in the world. To learn lessons and to have more knowledge about
disaster mitigation measures, IISEE, BRI, organized a study trip for one
week in the purpose to visit the affected regions by the earthquake, tsunami.
