Japanese Tsunami Predictions (1/6)

List item

Sitting in the middle of the consistently volatile geographical location known as the ‘ring of fire’, Japan is no stranger to the world’s most destructive earthquakes. Naturally being an island, Japan’s earthquakes usually combine with the Pacific ocean border to create some of the most impressive, and the most scary, tsunamis across the globe. Consequently, through some of the most hazardous ‘trial and error’ scenarios in history, coastline-dwelling citizens have marked out the country with stone tablets complete with engravings warning future occupants of the area not to build anything below that point. Some of these stone tablets are over ten feet tall and range in date from as early as the sixth century.
