    Hi Debito,

    If your readers are interested in learning about the Japanese earthquake insurance system, I’ve put the insurance chapter of my book on-line here: http://dilloncommunications.com/blog/?p=2113

    I’ve also included links to related information in English and Japanese.

    Stay safe, and congratulations on book In Appropriate.

    Best

      When we bought are brand new house, we were told and actually investigated thoroughly too, that the maximum you can get is 50% insurance for your house, against earthquakes. Not a lot really.

      As the article does also point out, this %’age value does vary depending upon the construction etc too.

      We have a Hebel House, so we also get discounts for Fire, since non-combustable. But these only amount to around 5%!!

      The clauses they have for wriggling out of paying you, in the event of a claim, are pretty poor to say the least. Makes a mockery of the “insurance”….just another way to scam money off you.
