Minato Voice

Minato City creates multilingual pamphlets and leaflets introducing systems and rules that are useful in daily life. The pamphlets and leaflets are put in bags and distributed as welcome packages to people who visit Minato City Hall to register as residents, but they are also available at Multilingual Information Corners.

Available languages are English, Korean, and Chinese. (Some materials may not be available in certain languages.)

The Multilingual Information Corners can be found on the first floor of Shiba Regional City Office, and in front of Counter 304 on the 3rd Floor of Minato City Hall.

For enquiries, please call the Global Community Planning Subsection of the Community Promotion Section at Minato City Hall on 03-3578-2046 or 03-3578-2524.


If a disaster such as an earthquake occurs, InterFM897 will provide the necessary information from Minato City, including evacuation procedures and damage updates. Please tune in to InterFM897 if a major earthquake strikes.

Minato City provides furniture tipping prevention devices etc free of charge, with the aim of keeping damage from falling furniture to a minimum in the event of an earthquake.

Aid is available only once per household and is provided in the form of items such as tension rod style devices, which support ceilings and furniture to prevent furniture from tipping over, and shatter prevention film for glass.

Installation of the furniture tipping prevention devices etc will also be provided for senior citizens, people with disabilities, expectant and nursing mothers and single parent families.

To apply, please fill out the application form for ‘aid in furniture tipping prevention devices etc’. This is available at the Collaboration Project Section at any Regional City Office.
