 Japan has many volcanoes, for example Mount Fuji and Mount Asahi.

Japan has many earthquakes too.

There was a huge earthquake at Tohoku on March 11, under the sea at 2:45 pm. People were at work and schools. After the earthquake a tsunami was produced and it was 10m high. The wave traveled very quickly and it hit the coast.

The tsunami broke a lot of buildings. About 27,000 people were killed, and many more people were injured. The people who were safe ran to the schools. About 500,000 people were made homeless.

My dad went to Tohoku and he gave medicine to the survivors.
