The present study, as a case study of the Great East Japan Earthquake, examined external assistance of response activities in a major disaster. Regarding external assistance in disasters, considering both sending and receiving the assistance is essential. In our analysis, interview data of responders were adopted. They were conducted to municipal and prefectural officials from both affected and unaffected areas. Based on their point of view, we examined practical assisting activities by external teams, receiving activities in an affected local government, and problems and lessons from their response.
