Department of Geography, NTNU
The geography education of Japan had emphasized disaster preparedness education in Social Studies-junior high school and Geography-senior high school from the Great East Japan Earthquake disaster past of 2011. After 2011, this disaster preparedness education has more important in education in Japan. The contents which are more important are how to read disaster map and to making the map for disaster preparedness. When students encounter big disasters, they need to judge, decision making and act based on the map, knowledge, for protect their selves and for helping other people. These abilities must be educated by school geography education. Geography curriculum in Japan tries to raise these abilities. On the other hand, there are some area where is not revival. In addition, some students have a big trouble. They have the trauma flashbacking the scenes that they have experienced the disasters such as Tsunami, broking houses, carrying everything by water and sad memories. It is difficult to teach disaster for them at school.
