    Environmental Implications of Japan's Geology 13, Tsunami wall, Hiraiga.

    Tsunami wall, Hiraiga. -- Tsunami are large waves caused by vertical displacement of sea water, usually resulting from submarine earthquakes. Destruction results when these waves wash over a shoreline. Their effects are greatest along irregular coastlines with bays that are broaden towards the ocean and narrow inland, such as the Pacific coast of Honshu. Japanese coasts have been affected by at least 72 tsunami in the last hundred years, and inundation heights up to 100 feet are not uncommon. -- Here a concrete wall has been erected in an attempt to protect the small fishing village of Hiraiga from at least small tsunami.

  • Thumbnail for Pillow (used by ladies)
    Pillow (used by ladies)

    Cushion resting on a wooden base.

It was used by ladies who rested on the back of their neck to avoid messing up their elaborate hairdos. The drawer at the bottom of the wooden base may have contained personal belongings, including jewelry at some point. Its condition is fine, but the colors of the cushion have faded (the design and pattern on the cushion remain visible).

    Landscapes of Japan, 14, Flat land used for cities, Tokyo viewed from the top of Tokyo Tower.

    Flat land used for cities, Tokyo viewed from the top of Tokyo Tower. -- Flat land is scarce and very valuable in Japan. It is the most productive agricultural land, and also the easiest land upon which to build. Consequently. there is great competition and tension between development and agricultural interests. As the population increases and more people move from rural to urban areas, Japanese cities continue to expand and an increasing proportion of flat land is lost to agricultural and other uses.
