Unique Society in the World covering mainly “Landslides”

The Japan Landslide Society is a unique society in the world who researches mainly the “landslide” threatening our countries quite frequently. The causes for landslides are due to not only heavy rains or melted snow, but also the earthquakes such as “the Chuetsu Earthquake”, “the Iwate-Miyagi Nairiku Earthquake”, “The great East Japan Earthquake”. When large-scale landslides occur, “Emergency Investigation Group” is organized by the volunteers belonging to the Landslide Society and makes a field inspection. The research results are reported at meetings, symposiums held regularly, the Journal of the Japan Landslide Society published 6 times a year, or irregularly in the “Landslides in Japan” publications. All the interested parties give an attention to these publications.

And the daily research results are not limited to the Society, but also the activities such as “Lecture for General Citizen”, “On Site Seminor”, “Local Field Visit Meeting”, “Childlen’s Landslide Society”, etc. Furthermore, these activities are planned and managed initiatively by 7 branches covering the whole nation, that is, Hokkaido, Tohoku, Kanto, Niigata, Chubu, Kansai and Kyushu. Thus, we are proud that the activities of Japan Landslide Society who is bearing in mind “Security and Safety” are attractive to those people who have a little knowledge of landslide regardless of industry, government and academia. We appreciate your enrollment in the society.
