Ibaraki Prefecture is home to many nuclear energy facilities, mostly located along the northeastern coast, with the most prominent being in Tokai Mura (東海村). If a nuclear emergency occurs:
- Stay inside. Do not go outside unless directed to do so.
- In the case of evacuations, follow the directions of local officials.
- Take your getaway kit and a change of clothes.
Niigata Prefecture has published an English-language Nuclear Disaster Preparedness Guide that may be useful, with explanations about nuclear disasters, radiation exposure, and evacuation procedures.
