Earthquakes are the most common natural disaster in Japan. Japan has continuous earthquake activity because of it's position. It sits on a subduction zone, which is where one plate is being forced beneath another. It is also at the meeting point of two pieces of the giant Pacific plate, which are moving in different directions along side each other. In Japan, hardly a day will go by without an earthquake. Most of these earthquakes are very minor, though every year there are a few that are strong.

Natural disasters that affect Japan include typhoons, earthquakes, volcanic eruptions, tsunamis, and tornadoes.
