Unbelievable video!! I'm not sure what the mainland is built on but the island of Okinawa(south of the mainland) is built on coral rock,so it's possible the mainland is as well.

Weren't these towns built on land re-claimed from the sea? That would explain the "wave" like motion and the upsurge of water forced inland by the tsunami.
What do you mean by "all the earthquakes happening lately"??

I Know How This Must Sound, Probably because it's similar to the plot of the movie 2012, but with all the earthquakes happening lately what if the earth's crust is destabilizing, And ironically we are closing in on that year, im not a conspiracy theorist, but i don't think we should rule this possibility out.
Their buildings are built to withstand these earthquakes,I can guarantee if this happened in the U.S buildings would be reduced to rubble.

Though Friday's Japan earthquake—which spawned a tsunami and damaged a nuclear power plant—was the largest to strike the country since the dawn of modern seismology, it wasn't the long dreaded "big one," experts say.
