A4 Emergency Kit

By King Jim 

The A4 Emergency Kit (¥6,825Prices are approximate only and subject to change.

) is an earthquake emergency kit disguised as an A4 file. The purpose is to have a survival kit which will let you survive for a day or so as you make your way home from the office in the event of a disaster. Since it’s Japan there is an almost 100% chance that said disaster will be earthquake-related and the contents of the kit reflect that. Of course, there are other disasters this might be useful for and to err on the side of caution we’re just going casually put the word zombies into this sentence.

In large disasters public transport can cease for days, along with a lack of essential items in supermarkets and convenience stores. The A4 Emergency Kit provides almost everything you need including a message on the outside reading “DO NOT PANIC. CALM DOWN.” Inside are water bottles, a blanket, food, portable toilets, glow-sticks and a knapsack for your walk home. You will stay fed, clean, protected from the cold, from heat, and have a light to guide you. And because it lasts up to four years, you can leave it on your shelf and know you’re prepared for the worst (i.e. earthquakes, zombies, etc.).
