Japan Natural Hazards:
Japan has numerous volcanoes, some of which are active, but many dormant. Each year approximately 1,500 seismic activities, which are mostly tremors, occur. Other natural hazards for this country include tsunamis and typhoons.
Japan Environmental Issues:
Japan is one of the largest consumers of fish and tropical timber, therefore contributing to the depletion of these resources in Asia and elsewhere. Furthermore, their environmental issues include air pollution from power plant emissions, resulting in acid rain. This causes acidification of lakes and reservoirs, which degrades the water quality and threatens aquatic life.
