On the 5th of November in 1854, when a big tunami after the earthquake hit Wakayama prefecture in Japan, Mr Goryo Hamaguchi saved people from Tsunami leading people to the higher place.

Japan introduced a draft resolution to a UN General Assembly committee aiming to designate November 5th as World Tsunami Day to raise awareness of the threats posed by seismic sea waves around the world.

In order to accomplish SDGs, disaster risk reduction is important as well.
