The word "tsunami" (meaning "harbor wave") comes from the Japanese language, and Japan has suffered considerable damage from such natural disasters. Therefore, Japan's research regarding tsunami is active. This research consists of various approaches including experiments, numerical computations, and social sciences, among others.
