Japan Earthquakes and Tsunamis

What you need to know before traveling to Japan
Why is Japan so Prone to having earthquakes and tsunamis?
How is the wall that Japan build going to stop tsunamis?
Japan finally decided on building a hug wall to stop tsunamis. But will it be enough to stop such a large wave? “Japanese authorities have unveiled plans to build a giant 250-mile long sea barrier to protect its coastline from devastating tsunamis. According to the proposals, the £4.6bn ($6.8bn) barrier would reach 12.5m high in some places – stretching taller than a four story building” (Independent). I think this wall should help a lot but it will still get water over but not that much to do serious damage to all the citizens. This will save a lot of money in the long run and it will also save a lot of lives in Japan.
Are people becoming more aware when earthquakes and tsunamis occur?
