Can minimalism make you safer?

I was recently reading about Fumio Sasaki, author of Goodbye Things. He describes one of the benefits of minimalism as being safer, to which one commenter wondered…how?

The answer lies in where Fumio lives – Japan – which experiences earthquakes quite frequently. I imagine despite all the advanced building technology, simply owning less that can fall during an earthquake can surely make you safer.
