💬 Comments on the video

There was one coastal village in Japan that years ago the Mayor diverted money meant for other projects to build a huge solid gate that would stop a big tsunami. People at the time thought he was an idiot and right up until the tsunami hit Japan they still thought he was an idiot. But when the tsunami was close they closed the gate shut and the tsunami roared inland up to the gate and got no further and the village stayed dry. The people of that area now look upon the Mayor who died some years ago as their savior and a man of great forward vision.

I was literally searching up on Tsunamis out of curiosity only to realize it's March 11, 2021. Exactly a decade since this has happened.

The saddest part is the nuclear plant explosion. People had to go inside the plant with high amount of radiation. And they mentioned it was as bad as what happened in Chernobyl. It’s just terrible. I admire these brave heroes.

When the old man said this is my house... At the end.... It broke was sad but was satisfied that he is alive.

I really love the way how Japanese people explain things, so detailed like a poem, it really makes you get a sense of what it was like

I remember watching this live as an 8 year old. The one time my mum let me stay up to watch tv. It was horrifying then. And still as horrifying now. Rip to all that were lost 🙏

Imagine if that earthquake struck at night and the tsunami approaching in the dark.🥶

Even though most of japan’s structures are made to go against earthquakes, seeing skyscrapers swaying like that must be terrifying

The fact that many didnt wait for authorities. They just knew to run to high ground... thats what saved lives that day. It was so fast. Im still surprised anyone survived that day!
