How Safe Is It to Travel in Tokyo from Disasters? 

Tokyo has recently been involved in a spate of natural disasters causing widespread disruption. In early October, the effects of a 5.7 earthquake were felt in Tokyo before it took a direct hit from Typhoon Hagibis.  This resulted in many tourists being isolated and having limited access to information. Tokyo is due to host the Summer Olympics in less than nine months, if you plan to travel or are concerned about Olympic Travel Security, it will help to understand that certain risks do exist and be prepared to take responsibility for your own personal security.

Japan is affected by earthquakes, tsunamis and typhoons quite often. The country is fixed along the most active earthquake belt in the world, making it more prone to natural disasters. The location of Tokyo makes it particularly vulnerable to earthquakes due to its geological formation. However, most of Tokyo’s earthquakes are considered minor on the Richter scale and local life is rarely affected.

It’s important as a tourist in Tokyo to stay alert and never become complacent. Earthquakes are impossible to predict, which makes it important to know how to respond, to better increase your chances of survival protection if ever unfortunate enough to be caught in one.

Earthquake Response Drills

To increase your chance of survival you need to respond immediately.  If you are indoors, stay indoors. Tokyo’s infrastructure and seismic technologies are the most resilient in the world; they are designed to absorb the shock.  Drop to the floor and protect your head, if possible, use furniture for cover, or position where objects cannot fall on you.  Hold your position even after the earthquake is finished, most quakes last less than 10 seconds but many injuries occur during the aftershock phase. When it’s safe to move, consider moving outside and making your way to the nearest evacuation point or safe area, primarily where there is less risk of items falling on you.

If an earthquake occurs while you are outside, stay outside, and the principles are generally the same.  Move away from anything that could fall on you.  If possible, stay in open terrain, drop to the ground and protect your head.  Don’t move until it’s safe, and then make your way to the nearest evacuation or safety point. When you have a few minutes to gather your thoughts, think about communication with family, colleagues or anyone you are traveling with to initiate dialogue. Start planning where you are going to spend the next 24-48hrs and try to secure food and water. During the Tohoku Earthquake, social media played a huge part in helping to confirm the safety of family and friends.

Tsunami Response Drills

If you are near the sea and you feel an earthquake or see large waves moving towards land, get to high ground immediately.  Most high-risk management countries have evacuation signs in place and early warning sirens, but an early warning may not happen, especially if the earthquake’s epicentre is close by.  Be proactive don’t wait to be told to move.  Tsunamis can last for hours; stay on high ground until you are cleared to move by a local authority.  Many people were killed, during the 2004 Indian Ocean tsunami when they returned to the beach before it was over.

Typhoons

Typhoon season in Japan runs between May and October.  Tokyo is mostly unaffected by the storms due to its unique underground flooding infrastructure, designed to mitigate damage.  However, the effects Typhoon Hagibis had on transportation lines within Tokyo caused a lot of problems for tourists this year.  The Disaster Prevention Portal has been designed in preparation for the 2020 Olympics; get familiar with the information before you travel.

Ways to keep Employees Safe While Travelling

Back in 2012 when we designed our first travel security course our target market was Gap Year Travelers, primarily young students heading away for prolonged durations. It soon transpired through a broader client reach-out that there was a significant demand for travel security training for a range of other groups. We were being approached by Business Leaders, HR managers, NGOs, and Fortune 500 Chief Security Officers. The market had realized one core truth about Travel Risk Management that individual travelers need the tools and training to help make informed decisions and manage their own risk. We set about developing our training based around the premise that ‘Identifying threats early to avoid the danger is absolutely key.

The word ‘Explore’ initially has connotations with adventure travel, or expeditions in remote regions. To us it means Exploring Business, Exploring new markets, or exploring opportunities. Whether a Business traveler, an energy sector worker, a student on gap-year, or a charity worker; to Explore Secure means carrying out your job, work, or passion securely and then returning home safe and sound. Our mission at ExploreSecure® is to help make that happen. We are dedicated to the safety and security of all travellers.

Whatever you and your team are exploring, the Female Travel Safety training from the ExploreSecure® team provides groups and organizations an effective and user-friendly system of delivering the skills and knowledge of how to mitigate and manage risk.

Travel Security Training

Travel security training is one of the key components of a secure travel risk management program. We provide travelers with the skills and knowledge to take ownership of their personal safety.

For example, “What if that person watching me leave the hotel every morning has criminal links?”

Identifying and assessing suspicious objects or activity


Security experts and officials use a number of terms and descriptors when referring to IEDs. Understanding what these mean can help you understand the nature of the incident you may be involved in: If you see an item such as a backpack or box discarded in a position that is deemed suspicious immediately remove yourself from the immediate location and call the emergency services trying to provide exact information on its location and description. >> Travel safety training

Top Tips and Ways to Stay Safe While Traveling

This is just a basic list of tips that will help y [...]


Know before you go

Research destinations and ask yourself the following question: What are the main dangers of the country or countries that I will be visiting? Crime, natural disasters, health issues and political instability are all things to be considered. Study www.fco.gov.uk or www.smarttraveller.gov.au both great resources for travelers. Time spent planning and preparing is never wasted. Don’t just look at the country but specifically at where you will be region, city and town.

Minimize risk


List the main dangers you have found from your research in points 1 and 2 and then ask yourself one further question: How can I minimize these risks? It is not just identification of risks that’s important. Learning how to react accordingly is vital. Professionals in all industries train constantly for what may happen; it should be the same for emergency preparedness when traveling. Consider taking a travel safety course. Click here to see our web-based travel safety E-learning course specifically designed for student travelers.

Check insurance

Insurance may cost money that you don’t think you can afford, but believe us – when you need it you will be glad you opted for it. Hospital bills and medical evacuation costs especially in more remote environments that you may find yourself in can easily reach into the hundreds of thousands of dollars. It may be as minimal as a twisted ankle on a Glacier trip, or appendicitis in Africa. Either of those could cost you thousands of dollars if you don’t have coverage. Check the small print over and over again of any insurance coverage. The insurance companies will not be flexible or heartfelt when it comes to paying out.

Learn first aid

Off the beaten track or on the road less traveled volunteers may find themselves in medical and first aid situations that they have to deal with themselves. Being able to care for you, friends and colleagues can significantly increase chances of survival in times of extremis. Learning how to identify, prevent, treat or diagnose the basics such as heat illness, travelers diarrhea and mosquito borne diseases are extremely important. Other life saving skills such as CPR and hemorrhage control should also be considered, especially if traveling in remote environments. Consider taking a first aid course or at a minimum learning the basics prior to travel.

Smile

Just as the above point in number 7. If you are kind to people then 90% of the time they will reciprocate. You smile they will smile back, if you are nice, they will also be nice. This opens so many doors to a traveler, meeting people, learning about secret local spots off the beaten track, meals with kind strangers and a host of other great experiences that come from interacting and being nice.

Never switch off

This is important especially because of the last two entries. Even though we will be patient, kind and nice we must at no times lose our situational awareness. That means never switching off your risk analysis. We should never walk around with our head in the clouds. It is vital to be aware of our surroundings at all times, to scan for danger and analyze risks constantly. This comes back to point 3. Minimize risk, through preparation, either by training or planning one should learn how to identify threats early.

Always wear a seatbelt

The biggest risks to travelers in foreign countries are vehicular accident. Even when on a bus, wear a seatbelt. There are many other risks related with transportation. Buses, trains, boats, rickshaws, mopeds all have a huge list of inherent risks associated to their use. Research and prepare, but whatever you do always wear that seatbelt. Never take chances with overland travel – it is the threat most likely to kill you!!


Think Situational Awareness

Be more aware of your environment. Focus on a relaxed awareness to pro-actively identify threats. Being aware of one’s surroundings is of vital importance to identify threats early. Criminals and predators may stalk their prey for a short time prior to an attack to provide the best opportunity of when to strike. With increased observational skills and awareness, chances of spotting an attack or threat are significantly increased and allow a person time to react. This is also useful in avoiding pick-pockets, muggers, opportunistic criminals and many other dangers.

Be patient

This is one of our key pieces of advice. Traveling is all about getting to know the locals, seeing new things, experiencing new adventures and having the time of your lives. If one is patient, polite and generally nice then life just goes so much smoother. With patience, comes the ability to put up with perceived rudeness, inefficiency, delays, corruption and a whole variety of things that as travelers or volunteers we may not be accustomed too. Things are done differently in different places, with patience we learn and we adapt to avoid conflict.

Know a bit more before you go

We cannot over emphasize the importance of knowledge. Research your destinations using commercial websites; interact on chat forums, advice pages and blogs. The websites www.lonelyplanet.com and www.bootsnall.com are great sources of information. Learn from others mistakes and experiences.

Travel Safety Overview

This is just a basic list of tips that will help you stay safe whilst traveling abroad. Travel safety and security is a huge topic and one with many variables and standpoints. If you have any questions or queries jump on our Facebook page or blog and ask us. We are dedicated to travel safety and security and will endeavor to answer your questions. Remember traveling is one of the most amazing things you will ever do, enjoy it but always think the number one rule of safe travel is the same as emergency care, think about number one.

How Can I Stay Safe While Traveling Alone? - Travel Security News

Traveling solo as a female is both courageous and [...]

Traveling solo as a female is both courageous and inspirational, unfortunately, like most adventures in life, it comes with certain risks. This should not deter the devoted enthusiast or curious beginner; it just means being aware of the threats and knowing ways to avoid or reduce them. One of the key things I learned during my time in the military was ‘knowledge is power’.


As a female traveller you are more likely than a male counterpart to be targeted for either criminal intent or sexual attack. Preparation and working to avoid the threats to minimize danger is key as part of a pro-active strategy.

How do you become less of a target? Travel light and only pack essential valuables. Think about the country you intend to visit, is it conservative? Wear appropriate clothing and always try to blend into the local environment. Be sensible about the times you walk alone, look confident and pay attention to your surroundings.

Consider your location, memorise different routes/access points to and from your hotel. This gives you options if you think you are being followed. Never take the quiet shorter route, always stick to the main busier streets even if this means adding an extra 15 minutes to your walk. The most important aspect of female travel safety is situational awareness working in conjunction with local knowledge and research

Situational awareness is being aware of your surroundings and understanding potential threats that may compromise your physical security and safety. The statement below sourced from this article is from a traveller that fell victim to opportunistic crime and highlights a lack of situational awareness:

“Iceland is ranked as ‘the safest country in the world’ by the Global Peace Index…Because Iceland feels so safe, my mindset was very laidback and I got lazy with taking notice of my surroundings”

Never become complacent and always be aware of your surroundings. When a country is considered ‘safe’ this does not mean the local opportunist won’t try their luck. In this incident, the individual made herself an easy target by dropping her guard. She had her phone and camera stolen, thankfully she was not on her own, if she had been, losing her phone would be losing her lifeline. Be vigilant at all times and start thinking about what target you present to potential hostiles.

If you want to know more about personal safety when traveling, the travel safety e-learning courses are designed by security professionals with extensive experience in Counter-Terrorism and personal safety. Our team stems from specialist backgrounds including the UK Government and Special-Forces and our coveted system focuses on pro-active avoidance measures.

Our courses include the following modules:

No one should leave home without knowing exactly what they are getting into. Research the country/city you intend to visit, gain as much information as possible about their laws, culture and the local environment.

When searching for accommodation, ensure you identify the tourist areas using Google or other sources, tourist locations tend to have a higher police presence, less reported crime and, often, easier access to safer transportation.

As a female traveller, research whether the location has a history of incidents targeting women, or anything that could negatively impact them. For example, if traveling to India, research would indicate that there have been multiple incidents of female travellers being harassed or assaulted. Some great resources for information are travel guides e.g. lonely planet or travel forums (this article has some suggestions)

Is Safe For Solo Female Travelers? - Explore Secure

Is Safe For Solo Female Travelers? Why are females [...]

Is Safe For Solo Female Travelers?

Why are females more likely to be a victim of Criminal Attention?

The majority of criminals will try and focus on perceived ‘easy’ targets. It is generally assumed that women will not try and fight back and/or will be less able to defend themselves. Females are targeted more frequently because a majority of women carry purses or handbags which are much more accessible to criminals. In certain cultures, women are perceived as lower class citizens and therefore treated with less respect.

Why are females more likely being the victim of violence (to include sexual attack)?

A majority of violent attacks by men against women are often sexual in nature. Some motivations for these attacks stem from personal grievances, issues of control, and social disorders. Unfortunately motivations can also be purely opportunistic and deviant in nature. Therefore it is vital for one’s safety to eliminate these perceived ‘opportunities’ for criminals.

There are always going to be exceptions to the rules, but now that I have identified two main topics that put female travelers at higher risk let us now focus our efforts on eliminating these increased threats:

How can female travelers reduce the risk of being targeted by criminals and sexual predators?

Female travelers can adapt and minimize the chances of encountering threats. This is the underlying principal of travel safety. Identify the threat or danger early and prepare accordingly so as to minimize the risk. The trick is not to avoid travel, but simply to prepare and adapt to traveling as a female to maximize safety.

Female Travel Safety Advice

Certain risks hold true for both male and female travelers alike.

  • Vehicular incident
  • Criminal
  • Violent attack
  • Health issues and Disease
  • Beach related incidents e.g. rip currents
  • Fire – accommodations/nightclubs etc.

So what risks is Female Travel Safety more vulnerable to? I believe two risks that female travelers have an increased chance of falling victim to verses male counterparts are;

Know before you go

Research destinations and ask yourself the following question:

What are the main dangers of the country or cities that I will be visiting?

Crime, natural disasters, health issues and political instability are all things to consider. Though further research can provide more specific and current issues such as date rape drugs being utilized or a spate of recent muggings in certain locations. Study www.fco.gov.uk or www.smarttraveller.gov.au both great resources for travelers.

Time spent planning and preparing is never wasted. Don’t just look at the country but specifically at where you will be region, city and town. With knowledge comes power.

Know a bit more before you go

We cannot over emphasize the importance of knowledge. Research your destinations using commercial websites; interact on chat forums, advice pages and blogs. The websites www.lonelyplanet and www.bootsnall.com are great sources of information. Learn from others mistakes and experiences. If you have the time and inclination go onto travel forums and ask other travelers about what they experienced in the locations that you will visit.

Plan accordingly and commensurate with risk

List the main dangers you have found from your research in points 1 and 2 and then ask yourself one further question:

How can I minimize these risks?

It is not just identification of risks that’s important. Learning how to react accordingly is vital.

Consider taking travel safety training. Click here to see our web-based travel safety e-learning briefing specifically designed for travelers and full of useful information about how to identify threats early to avoid danger.

Think Situational Awareness

We should never walk around with our head in the clouds. It is vital to be aware of our surroundings at all times, to scan for danger and analyze risks constantly. Often those injured or killed in active shooter, terrorist and other incidents or accidents are those slowest to react. Situational awareness and threat detection provide valuable seconds to react, therefore increasing the chances of survival.

Never switch off

At no times switch off situational awareness. Always look for escape routes; always look at who is watching you. Our  Female Travel Safety briefings teach how to learn and practice situational awareness and provide tricks of the trade to help keep you switched on.

Always wear a seatbelt

The biggest risks to travelers in foreign countries are vehicular accident. Even when on a bus, wear a seatbelt. There are many other risks related with transportation. Buses, trains, boats, rickshaws, mopeds all have a huge list of inherent risks associated to their use. Research and prepare, but whatever you do always wear that seatbelt.

With patience, comes the ability to put up with perceived rudeness, inefficiency, delays, corruption and a whole variety of things that as travelers we may not be accustomed too.

Check insurance

Insurance may cost money that you don’t think you can afford, but believe me – when you need it you will be glad you opted for it. Hospital bills and medical evacuation costs especially in more remote environments that you may find yourself in can easily reach into the hundreds of thousands of dollars. It may be as minimal as a twisted ankle on a Glacier trip, or appendicitis in Africa. Either of those could cost you thousands of dollars if you don’t have coverage. Check the small print over and over again of any insurance coverage. The insurance companies will not be flexible or heartfelt when it comes to paying out.

Learn first aid

Off the beaten track or on the road less traveled you may find yourself in medical and first aid situations. Being able to care for you, friends and colleagues can significantly increase chances of survival in times of extremis.

Travel Risk Management & Travel Safety Elearning | Explore Secure

Road Traffic Collisions (RTC) is happening more frequently and is the number one cause of death to travellers worldwide.  A study by theWorld Health Organisation(WHO) identified on average 1.35 million people annually is losing their lives due to RTCs.  A long time ago the UK Police changed their terminology from Road Traffic Accident (RTA) to RTC because there is no such thing as a Road Traffic ‘Accident’ – there is always a cause or blame to assign.

Last month three charity workers were killed in South Africa as they travelled back to the airport.  Theirdriver lost controlof the vehicle and it ended upside-down in a river. Details are still unclear regarding the cause, but the outcome is one that is all too familiar. Travellers dying or being seriously injured as a result of incidents that could have been avoided.

The Biggest Danger to Travelers :

Ground transportation is the biggest danger to any traveller, yet one of the most neglected from a corporate and organisational perspective, and one that travellers are nearly always most relaxed about. Whether it is an assumption that taxis and rideshare services are safe, orthat seatbeltsdon’t need to be worn on coaches and buses, right through to lack of due diligence on drivers and vehicles assigned to travellers.

Take back control

Whether you are travelling for business or leisure, secure transportation should be considered as part of a robust travel risk management strategy. It’s important as an employer to have protection measures in place for your staff when they are travelling abroad. Employing a trusted secure transportation company is a strong start to improving the safety of your team while travelling on business.  If you are anindependent travelleror there are budget concerns, it is imperative that due diligence and a risk-based approach is implemented at each juncture.

Self-Drive?


Driving in an unfamiliar country can be stressful for many people, navigating around a busy town or city to find your hotel or meeting point, then trying to find parking is added pressure you don’t need. It also increasesyour risk significantly, not only due to the overarching threat of getting lost and taking a wrong turn into a dangerous area, or being involved in an accident, but also because of what may happen if stopped by the police. If you don’t speak the language and you can’t communicate, it’s quite possible a simple situation could escalate in the wrong direction quite quickly.
Taxi:  The next option is a taxi but how reliable or safe is the cab you are about to get into? The standards vary massively between locations. It is imperative to do research. For example, a taxi in London is comparatively safer than a taxi in Mexico. Why? Primarily due to increased licensing and checks imposed on drivers in London, but also because of the operating environment and level of policing.

Rideshare: Popular apps such as Uber and
Lyftprovide a rideshare capability operating in most cities around the world.  Ridesharing has become increasingly popular because it is more affordable and sometimes more accessible in comparison to other transportation options.  Read this article Rideshares are not as safe as you might think if you are concerned about your travel options abroad.

Duty of Care and Journey Management:

An organization sending employees, students, or volunteers abroad has a legal and moral duty of care for their personal safety. Transporting employees through ridesharing companies and/or unregulated taxis increases the level of risk for the employees and heightens the corporate liability of employers.

If you are unsure, Seek Advice:

You should consider seeking advice fromonline travel safety trainingif you intend to travel through complicated environments to ensure you maximize your personal security.  Incorporating secure transportation into your travel risk management plan will also provide you that extra level of security and will help to take away the stress that comes with transiting abroad.
