始めていくにはわかりにくい所にあります。人も少なく、入るのにちょっと勇気が入ります。観光と言うより学習に行くところです。

中越地震で被災した小千谷市にある震災ミュージアム。小千谷ICから5分程度にあり、無料で震災を感じれる施設です。まずシュミレーションでは約4分の地震体験ができます。震度6くらいだそうで、もしこれを感じたら怖いと思います。震災の写真が多くあり地震の怖さを知り、そなえと普段の心構えも必要と感じました。そなえに必要なものも置いてあり、早速揃えたいと思います。定期的に訪れ震災について感じたいと思います。

椅子に座っての地震体験は迫力がありました。中越地震を思い出しました。忘れてはいけないことなのだと肝に銘じました。地震大国ですのでこれからいろいろと準備をしないといけないと思いました。是非行ってみてください。考え方が変わると思います。
