The mechanism of the Japan Sea earthquake as inferred from long-period surface waves and tsunamis Kenji Satake * Fig. 1. The source regions of large (Ms> ) earthquakes which occurred in this by:   The date was September 1, , and the event was the Great Kanto Earthquake, at the time considered the worst natural disaster ever to strike quake-prone : Joshua Hammer.   The Meiji-Sanriku earthquake of M on J was highly destructive, generating one of the most devastating tsunamis in Japanese history, destroying about 9, homes and causing at le deaths.

  We discovered that two-thirds of all major earthquakes with moment magnitude M w ≥ in the past 40 years in East Japan began within 15 km of the seaward prolongation of a volcanic lineament, and that motion across the northern seismotectonic lineament reversed its sense in the days prior to the Great Earthquake, suggesting the onset of.   The Great East Japan Earthquake that occurred on Ma caused tremendous damage to people's lives and the natural environment over a vast area, from the Tohoku region (the northeastern district of Japan) to the Kanto region (the area around Tokyo). A huge number of houses and buildings fell apart, and s people lost their lives. The name for Japan in Japanese is written using the kanji 日本 and pronounced Nippon or Nihon. Before it was adopted in the early 8th century, the country was known in China as Wa (倭) and in Japan by the endonym Yamato. Nippon, the original Sino-Japanese reading of the characters, is favored today for official uses, including on banknotes and postage stamps.

Woodblock prints on the Meiji-Sanriku Earthquake published in newspapers (kawaraban) form another prominent collection of disaster art. The Meiji-Sanriku Earthquake was a magnitude earthquake that hit northeastern Japan on J The earthquake itself did not cause much damage, but the tsunami that followed it proved devastating.   7. Sanriku, Japan – 15 June This tsunami propagated after an estimated magnitude earthquake occurred off the coast of Sanriku, Japan. The tsunami was reported at Shirahama to have reached a height of m, causing damage to more t homes and killing s people. north of the earthquake zone and illustrated in figures 1a and 2b ruptured during the great (M w about ) tsunami earthquake. The Pacific Plate in that region also experienced an internal rup-ture in from extension near the Japan trench. Similarly large megathrust earthquakes within the rupture zone during the past century. The earthquake of July 9, (magnitude 7½, epicentral intensity VIII‐IX MM), with epicenter at 36°54′N, 26°12′E, was followed by a severe seismic sea wave which originated near 36°49′N, 26° wave was probably produced by a series of landslides on the steep banks of .
