What is the Historical Urban Disaster Prevention Research Institute? In order to protect cultural heritage and the originality of historical cities and pass them on to the next generation, it is necessary to create knowledge that will take root in the entire community and enhance it into culture. is essential.
At the Research Institute for Disaster Prevention for Historical Cities, we are developing new research themes by collaborating and fusing the academic fields of humanities and social sciences and science and engineering, which have traditionally been pursued separately under the research themes of cultural heritage disaster prevention or historical urban disaster prevention. It is working. The institute is collaborating with the Ritsumeikan University Art Research Center, which makes full use of information technology such as archives, and is building a platform that brings together domestic and international talent and research projects.

Kyoto is a place where special efforts must be made in disaster prevention, as it is home to a large number of important and valuable cultural properties, and its climate is extremely hot in summer and cold in winter. .
The UV-blocking hats with simple helmets were displayed because they understood that they were necessary for children to go to school and in their daily lives.
We believe that a UV-blocking cap with a simple helmet is a necessary item for Japanese elementary school students, who have a culture of going to and from school by themselves, to minimize injuries in the event of a disaster.
Furthermore, the hat’s functionality was evaluated by the research institute, including protection against UV rays, heat stroke prevention, communication in case of a disaster, and ability to be used for 6 years. .
We would like to draw the attention of municipalities and elementary schools that are thinking about disaster prevention and adopt this cap for the health and safety of children.

Children are most likely to be injured in accidents or disasters while commuting to school and in the evening.
There is a disaster prevention hood that children must prepare when they enter elementary school, but this disaster prevention hood is installed at the school and cannot be used when commuting to school. We developed this product because we believe that children should be kept safe by wearing caps.

What you need is a hat that combines the original purpose of a hat, which is to provide shade from the sun, protect against the heat, and protect your head.
The newly developed “UV protection hat with a simple helmet” is not only a simple helmet, but also has a pocket inside the hat where you can put GPS and contact information, making it a useful hat in times of disaster.
