Japanese Tsunami Wall, Tsu-Shi

Along some coastal areas of japan where population density is high, tsunami walls are extensively built as tsunami protection. Japan is the more prominent country which has used tsunami walls to have protection against locally generated tsunami. These walls are of 4.5 metres. Theses walls are also designed to redirect water in the event of a tsunami facilitating  floodgates and channel.
