How far inland can a tsunami go?
There are various factors that determine how far inland a tsunami can go. Here is a list of factors involved: The terrain of the land and the height of the tsunami wave. If the land is mountainous the tsunami would probably not go very far; however, if it is lowland, it may wash inland for several kilometers. Another important factor in a tsunami is the volume of water displaced. It is not the height of a tsunami that gives it momentum over land, but the length. The angle at which the tsunami reaches land and the geographical shape of the coastline: A concave coastline will suffer more damage than a convex coastline that can deflect the water movement. Land forms slow them down considerably. The distance travelled inland is directly related to the change in elevation. Note, an earthquake's impact, in the form of tsunamis, can also travel halfway around the world in the ocean. For instance, the earthquake off the shore of Japan in 2011 created tsunamis reaching the United State's pacific coast line. The 2011 Tsunami in Japan Most scientists reported that the 33-foot tsunami wave made it 6 miles inland, with washed up shrapnel and water reaching 10 miles or more inland.

What power does a tsunami have?
It all depends on how it started and how big it is, but the force and destruction can move entire houses, trains, planes, and all things smaller that are in its path on shore both far inland or as the tsunami returns to the sea it can take these things far out to sea with it. There was an entire house floating way out in the Pacific ocean after the Japanese tsunami of 2011.

How far in did the tsunami go in japan?
I presume you mean how far INLAND did the tsunami travel before stopping or retreating. That would depend on the topography ( look it up!!) of the affected area and the power contained in the wave at the point of striking the shoreline. In other words, the closer to the earthquake centre, generally the bigger and more dangerous the wave. Additionally It was reported that the 33ft (10m) Tsunami wave triggered on March 11, 2011 off the coast of Japan made it 6 miles (10 kilometers) inland with washed up debris and water reaching distances of 10 miles or more inland.
