The Sumida Ward Association of the Deaf and the sign language circle in Tokyo made the bandana used for the Deaf in case of the disaster such as earthquakes.

A purple, pink-colored bandana, square-shaped of 57 centimeters, is folded in half and put on the shoulders.

There are phrases respectively, "I am Deaf" and "I can sign", with the illustration of the ear and the hand, on the bandana so that the information is seen at a glance in the shelter.

About 500 copies of the bandana are being distributed to the Deaf.
