This webpage discusses the history of tsunamis in Japan. The first
section, "Why Japan?" illustrates why tsunmais occur in Japan and how they
are a permanent characteristic. In the section on how we detect tsunamis,
the Japan Meteorological Agency is discussed and their importance in the
prevention of tsunamis in Japan. The section on the history of tsunamis
describes particular incidents and the damage done by each. Given
the data, a future outlook can be determined on whether or not tsunamis
in Japan will continue. The last section gives the resources I used
to create this webpage.
