At the times of the earthquake disasters, serious damage such as falling of books and collapsing bookshelves have been reported in the library.
We propose earthquake countermeasures not only to minimize the damage caused by earthquakes but also to reduce the restoration work after the earthquake.

Special Feature KUMAMOTO EARTHQUAKE
What we learned from this disasters
Since we are headquartered in Kumamoto, we also experienced the power of that. The factory was affected and our employees' lifeline was cut for several months.
KONGO has been working on earthquake countermeasures since the 1970s and has proven its high isolation technology even in the Great Hanshin-Awaji Earthquake of 1995 and also in recent earthquakes.
However, by actually experiencing for ourselves, we once again recognized the importance of concentrating human wisdom about daily preparations and unpredictable things. Therefore, after the Kumamoto earthquake, we visited the library in Kumamoto prefecture and interviewed the staff. Here are some excerpt from that interview.
It would be appreciated if this helped a little for future prevention measures.
