Mr Endo survived because he had spent the night in his son Kazuo's modern apartment, which was earthquake resistant, while his own house was old and unsafe and collapsed on Mrs. Endo during the earthquake.


Mr Endo had visited his son on the evening of January the 16th and spent the night there, Kazuo's house was probably built after 1981so this means that the house is far more stable, it would probably have to be earthquake proof, which also reduces the risk of wreckage.

Btw, do not copy, i wrote this for my assesment. Just change it a bit. Thankyou. x
