Comment

[reach 2019]

Governor Kabashima

 At first, everybody, A Happy New Year. A word makes a New Year's comment on holding a press conference.

 Earthquake with intensity 6 lower was generated yesterday in Nagomi-machi at around 6:10 p.m. on 3rd.

 We establish antidisaster headquarter promptly in the prefecture and deal with collection of damage information in cooperation with related organizations such as the Self-Defense Forces and the police, firefighting.

 Currently, damage about human life is not reported. In addition, we return in means of transportation and lifeline including the Shinkansen and expressway as usual. But damage with big shaking and it might occur again in future when based on experience of Kumamoto earthquake.

 Citizens of the prefecture want to have you take action to follow own command above all. And we want to have those information warn enough as we send information from the prefecture and the municipalities.

 We receive this earthquake occurrence and recognize importance of the preparation for disaster some other time. We make use of experience that we got in Kumamoto earthquake to the maximum and want to comprise for disaster that can occur anytime well this year.

 It is three years from outbreak of Kumamoto earthquake this year. During the kabashimakemmatsurigoto third quarter, it is very important one year equal to year of mop-up.

 And World Cup of rugby, again women's handball world championships are finally held in Kumamoto in autumn. By women's handball Asia championship of last year, I was keenly aware of heat of venue, too. Toward success of this meeting of this year, big; think that may bound.

 Furthermore, from the day after tomorrow, NHK Taiga Drama Series "idaten" which did Shizo Kanaguri from this prefecture with main character starts. Nagomi-machi that became epicenter of earthquake last night is hometown of Shizo Kanaguri strangely. Worry and voice of support arrive from all over Japan, but pray so that there is the word "that evil turns and accomplishes with fortune" so that such a thing happens.

Governor Kabashima
 I chose character called "splash" in one character of this year. We loaded this with thought that "jump" wanted to greatly do step and route of revival that we advanced to steadily when to there for creative revival from Kumamoto earthquake generated in 2016 in hop, 2018 in 2017.
 To that end, we will accelerate approach of "important point ten items for creative revival" more. Particularly, "the rebuilding of house" plans penetration of "five assistance measures" as the most important problem of prefectural government and will wrestle for the rebuilding of life of victims with every effort.
 It becomes memorable year when KUMAMON, rufi, two international athletic meets and "idaten" and Kumamoto attract attention very much from the world this year.
 Beginning of the new times and this one year to be pray for it being happy age for various places of all citizens of the prefecture. That is all from me.  

 

Questions and answers

●Receive large-scale earthquake of outbreak on January 3

(secretary company)

 Thank you. Only one point has a question from secretary company. Though it was touched in opening words some time ago, the governor is that memorial and museum of the birth place open on 11th that Wasuicho is the birth place of Mr. Shizo Kanaguri, too, how are you thinking about this neighborhood while caution of shaking of earthquake of intensity 6 lower degree is necessary for around one week though blow to sightseeing is place that there is concern about?

 

Governor Kabashima

 Fortunately, we think that we must be careful from now on so that there are not right or wrong harmful rumors as it is that damage was very small and are glad very much if then you can help in dispatch.

 We think that many nations did not know the place name called Nagomi-machi. Called "evil turns, and Taiga Drama Series "idaten" of Shizo Kanaguri is connected from Nagomi-machi and it concerning fortune and eggplant" though was attacked this time by such an earthquake, and "shall go together to cheer up Wasuicho?" think that it is desirable for the governor to have feel.

 As there are harmful rumors to say, it thinks that we want you to throw right or wrong it toward the fortune in this way though we think that there are plus and negative aspect.

 

(secretary company)

 Then please from the companies.

 

Q

 Though it is what, it was said about earthquake last night some time ago that damage is small, but how about impression about the damage situation and conventional correspondence of the prefecture some other time again, or would you tell?

 

Governor Kabashima
Governor Kabashima
 At first we want to have recognize by all means as there was little damage itself, but we do the situation that we have disaster when, or it is not revealed after three days of one of New Year holidays and had.
 To that end, get a grip by the everyday preparation. As we experienced this Kumamoto earthquake even if we assumed the prefecture, much staff gathered including me quickly and hit intelligence though vacations were. Then Tamana Area Promotion Bureau dispatched the staff in Nagomi-machi government office, too and took the support system. We think that this is because after all we had experience of Kumamoto earthquake.
 Then we were able to hold meeting of the first antidisaster headquarter very in a short time. After the earthquake occurrence, we were able to hold quickly for less than two hours. As it takes 3 hours after the outbreak, at the time of Kumamoto earthquake, we think that this everyday training and experience might be kept alive in this sense.
 But we felt that it was important at all to fix such system which might get up when some other time as experience might not be made use of when this was careless without being careless.

 

Q

 We would like place that the weekend begins again from tomorrow and place what kind of night night duty system has its stolen successively though it is the future system if there is.

 

Governor Kabashima

 Though we think that question is what kind of system you will take in future, we are collecting the damage situation currently and will judge based on the damage situation about the future system.

 

Q

 We say feeling of the current governor, or please tell feelings, but we think that part that it is relieved there was little damage follows, and there is part by caution, but please let know part of such a feeling a little.

 

Governor Kabashima

 Though it was repeated, we did after three days of one of New Year holidays, and nobody imagined, that such an earthquake takes place. We felt that such an unexpected thing was always possible again, and then the system thought that it which was fixed was important at all even at such time.
 Shaking came when, in fact, it was just before just before that, and what was sent back from Tokyo was sent back, and myself began to read newspaper immediately. So people of the staff think that it might be gathered with such a feeling setup of task force and myself went hastily (in the prefectural office) immediately (disaster).
 We thought that thing, it which kept the system for disaster not to know when it took place every day were which functioned this time and felt that you must fix without being still careless some other time.

 

Q

 Though human damage is conditions that we do not almost leave, by big earthquake of intensity 6 lower, how do you feel about there?

 

Governor Kabashima

 We think whether it was not such situation when we can cope with this earthquake enough because intensity 6 lower is us who experienced Kumamoto earthquake. People of the staff, too.

 
Q
 Though we wanted to ask, there was the situation that at first the Shinkansen stopped we had the first point and homecoming rush coming at the same time, and was confused user of train two points, but, as for cooperation with JR, the exchanges of communication, what kind of correspondence would be done yesterday as Kumamoto?

 

Governor Kabashima

 When, as for only one of my having received report, offer of blanket was called for by JR (to say). We sent 500 pieces of blankets in it when we received request, "there was blanket" person who stayed was broken by Shinkansen, and what we actually only sent last night would be good most. [towards ※ secretariat] Was there not it yet at stage last night; request? Place there, I am sorry a little. About connection with JR (I would like explanation).

 

The secretariat

 As it was that I would like preparations last night, we prepared in Department of Health and Social Services.

 
Governor Kabashima
 So did you send last night?

 

The secretariat

 It is 22:30 that it arrived at Kumamoto Station.
[in ※ accuracy 22:40. Progressing case of supplies was completed at 23:00.]

 

Governor Kabashima

 Of last night.

 

The secretariat

 Yes.

 

Governor Kabashima

 Last night. We thought whether it is today that we sent (with blanket), but are that I sent blanket then to be able to sleep in peace in such a form as it is to arrive on time so that cooperation, passenger with JR are not colder.
 Then it is that we did thing, such a thing said to be for the prefecture as all the Shinkansen stopping know by the news.

 

Q

 When we sent blanket or support supplies as the prefecture.

 

Governor Kabashima

 As there was request, it means that I sent.

 

Q

 Though it is one point, at the time of Kumamoto earthquake, there is foreshock, and would you tell the governor that shaking gets up in comment when again, or it is not revealed afterwards now main shock came immediately though you said if it is what as the just prefecture or may be taken measures based on having got up twice?

 

Governor Kabashima

 When this said to citizen of the prefecture in aspect called message, but thought whether it was the end in it after foreshock got up by Kumamoto earthquake, main shock got up.
 It was 28 hours, but says sonoguraino swingback or thinks that we want everybody to understand that big earthquake may be possible and thinks that it is what is understood by citizens of the prefecture.
 We think that we want everybody to know that about the same shaking may happen for around one week. As it is said to expert as for this for around one week that you should be careful, we think that we are wrong if we are about to be cautious well for this one week.

 

Q

 We think that we are related to big shaking having possibilities to happen again, how will about in future though it is the system of the present antidisaster headquarter whether you think that continuation is how just necessary for the governor?
Governor Kabashima

Governor Kabashima

 Though we answered some time ago, we will collect damage information from now on.

 And we will be to judge from now on while expecting future development including the damage situation about the future system.

 

Q

 Because caution is need for around one week, will it at least become continuing form?

 

Governor Kabashima

 Though we are still determining what kind of system it continues by, we are to judge by the end of today.

 

(secretary company)

 Then if it is like time soon, but may still say by all means.

 

Q

 It means that damage itself was not big to there, will you have inspection shitaritokatoiu plan in future in the field?

 

Governor Kabashima

 It is expected that we judge on seeing the damage situation of Nagomi-machi.

 

Q

 Then will that you go to the field be to be still considering?

 

Governor Kabashima

 Yes.

 

(secretary company)

 Then thank you today.

 

Governor Kabashima

 Thank you.
