Students at Nagoya's Tsuyuhashi Elementary School take cover under their desks during a disaster drill after their start-of-term ceremony on Sept. 1, 2017, Japan's Disaster Prevention Day. Drills were held across the country, from the Tohoku region hit by the 2011 Great East Japan Earthquake and tsunami, to government offices in Tokyo, where officials conducted a disaster prevention exercise presuming a major quake right beneath the capital.
