About the Visit of the Korean Red Cross Delegation
to Japan


The Japanese Red Cross Society (JRCS) welcomed a delegation from the Republic of Korea National Red Cross (KNRC) that visited Japan from June 2 to June 5, 2017 for a tour of the nuclear disaster preparedness and response system in place at the JRCS to be prepared for possible nuclear disaster in Korea. The delegates visited the JRCS headquarters (HQ), Fukushima and Miyagi prefectures, and the Japanese Red Cross Ishinomaki Hospital, where they participated in a session of the JRCS Nuclear Disaster Response Basic Training.

The KNRC’s visit to Japan has been recapped, based largely on what was reported by the KNRC after the trip, via the links below, along with the slide decks presented at the meetings as well as the photographs from the tour.
