Jishin Hoken or Earthquake Insurance

What do you think about the recent frequent earthquakes that occurred in various parts of Japan?

Let us introduce to you Jishin Hoken or Earthquake Insurance.

There is no independent contract of Earthquake Insurance.

The contract for only Earthquake Insurance is not acceptable.

It is essential to contract as a set with Kasai Hoken or Fire Insurance.

Building and furniture are covered. Furniture only is to be contracted. Indemnity covered by Earthquake Insurance is damages (fire/collapse/burying/washing away) by building/eruption/tsunami or tidal wave.

Fire Insurance covers fires of buildings and furniture, etc.

But fires caused by earthquakes are not covered.

For details, please consult to insurance companies or their agents.
