    The purpose of this study makes clear the issues about Disability on Disaster that have been still remain since the Great Hanshin-Awaji Earthquake. At first, research trends were presented by reviewing previous research in Japan, Emergency proposals issued by associations such as self-advocacy groups for people with disabilities were analyzed to review how these situations have changed. Moreover, the issues experienced primarily by people with physical disabilities during the Kumamoto Earthquake were examined. The results revealed that the basic issue is that frameworks for “participation of people with disabilities” have not been established.

    Does persons with auditory agnosia (persons with disabilities) correctly recognize the chime for alerting the emergency broadcast used in Japan? In order to understand impact caused by the chimes, I conducted two cycles of audiovisual experiments totally in which 78 persons with disabilities participate and 43 persons with non-disabled participate as controls. The subjects remembered the alphabet (A to E) and card symbols, and in the second experiment, they added mental arithmetic and subtraction devised to be one digit, in order to compare the attention power of each chime. There was no significant difference between the disabled and the non-disabled in the first experiment, but significant differences appeared in the second experiment. The differences between the middle-and-severely disabled and the non-disabled was remarkable. And after repeated experiment, the difference was less significant. When lightly loaded or repeated for persons with auditory agnosia, the current chimes are effective for them.

    A century has passed since Kure Shuzo publicized his research report in 1918. To commemorate his achievements, a film was made and titled “Before the Dawn: 100 Years of Kure Shuzo and Nameless Mentally Handicapped People.” We endeavored to have the film put on the screen in Fukui Prefecture. The purpose of our efforts is to promote community development in Fukui Prefecture with a clear shared idea of mental health care. Our collaboration was expected to be a chance for developing social human connections to create a community of the largest social welfare. The collaboration proved to be successful. The history, or the knowledge about our past, helps understand our present deeply and form a clear vision of our better future. Historical research is supposed to pay the greatest attention to communities and to transmit the historical facts of the communities to the future generations..
