So what are you going to name your new Island?
Personally, I believe that Japan was built by volcanic forces rather than tectonics, so any rise and fall of land would not be attributed in such a
manner as you are saying. It seems also that off the coast of Okinawa the sunken "pyramid" structures are an indication of what might befall the
rest of the Island chain versus the other way around. I am only going on what is discovered below the waterline because I do not know of any new land
masses for Japan over the last few centuries.
We do know that sea levels are rising, so in order for an island to appear it would have to be a major thrust of a plate or a volcano.
Maybe "New Tuvalu" will be an appropriate name!
