Video: Japan’s Earthquake Triggers Tsunami Waves Surge Nov 2016

A 7.3 magnitude earthquake shook northern Japan at 5:59 am on 22nd of November, 2016, triggering a small tsunami.

Japan Meteorological Agency said that the epicentre of the earthquake, which was felt in Tokyo, was off the coast of Fukushima prefecture at a depth of about 10 km (6 miles).

The quake however did not kill or injure anyone, nor did it damage the Onagawa Nuclear Plant, though Tokyo Electric Power Co was still checking if the other nuclear plants in Fukushima are damaged.

The biggest quake recorded to hit Japan was a 9 magnitude quake, causing a large tsunami which led to the world’s worst nuclear crisis since Chernobyl, a quarter of a century earlier.

Below are some videos of the tsunami waves surge:

Powerful Typhoon Neoguri battered Okinawa on Tuesday bringing heavy rain and strong winds, high waves up to 14 meters (46 feet) high and storm surges that were set to intensify as the storm passed the main island of Okinawa in the evening.

The Okinawa government reported four people were injured, while a man was reported missing from a fishing boat in rough seas off Kyushu.

Typhoon Neoguri is one of the strongest and biggest typhoons to hit during Japan’s summer months.

The Japan Meteorological Agency said that Typhoon Neoguri was packing sustained winds of 194 kilometers (120 miles) per hour and gusts up to 240 kph (148 mph).

Local airports were closed and about 550,000 people were advised to evacuate their homes.

Forecasts show the storm tracking toward Kyushu island and then across Japan’s main island of Honshu. 

Stunning Photos Of Sounkyo Hyobaku Matsuri (Ice Waterfall Festival)

On the northern island of Hokkaido, fierce winter weather blankets everything in white. The Sounkyo Hyobaku Matsuri, or Ice Waterfall Festival, rewards those who venture off the beaten path and brave the cold climate. The small town of Kamikawa, where the festival takes place, lies on the edge of Daisetsuzan National Park, the largest national park in Japan, which is worthy of a visit on its own.

Sounkyo Hyobaku Matsuri features an otherworldly landscape of frozen waterfalls, glowing ice caves and igloos to explore. Just come prepared, as temps often plummet to -20C. After experiencing this winter wonderland, stay in one of the local hotels across the street, many of which come equipped with a natural onsen (hot springs). You can thank us for that tip later.

Running from January to March, Sounkyo Hyobaku has one of the longest running periods of any festival in Japan, so it’s an easy link-up with other winter festivals in the region.

Anwar In Japan: Edited, Recycled Photo Again?

So Anwar Ibrahim wants us to know that he is now in Japan and that there was a big crowd of medias surrounding him at the Narita Airport.

(Please click here for “Is Malaysia The New World Power?”)

But the photo does not look right.

Why are there so many Malay cameramen and reporters waiting for him in Japan?

And the weirdest part is, some reporters and cameramen were not even looking at his direction but were focusing their cameras at some other directions.

So, it was an old photo taken in Malaysia that was edited by his supporter!

It is very hard to understand why Anwar posted that photo.

What about his integrity?

Without integrity there will be no credibility.

But maybe he knows that Pakatan supporters can easily be tricked and do not mind to be tricked by their leaders.

Photos: Heavy Snow Killed 7, Injured 1000 In Japan

More than 20,000 households were without electricity on Sunday.

Japan Meteorological Agency expected more snowfalls in the northern part of the country on Sunday.

Is Malaysia The New World Power?

On Sunday morning, January 19, 2014 the opposition leader, Dato’ Seri Anwar Ibrahim was denied entry into Japan at the Narita Airport in Tokyo.

He wrote in his Facebook that he was told to board the first flight back home or face deportation.

Capture

And as usual, he blamed the Malaysian government as he wrote in the last paragraph:

“In this regard, I demand an explanation from the Malaysian Minister of Foreign Affairs, in particular, as to what role Wisma Putra has played in this scandalous episode in respect of the so-called “latest report” that has purportedly led to my being forcibly evicted from Japan.”

Without thinking, other opposition leaders started to not only blamed the Malaysian government but also humiliated the Japanese government.

PKR Youth members staged a protest led by Youth chief Shamsul Iskandar Mohd Akin outside the Japanese embassy and handed a memorandum of protest to the Japanese Ambassador Shigeru Nakamura, calling for an explanation on the incident.

The Star reported that PKR’s Youth chief said:

“We strongly believe that the Japan Government’s actions were extraordinary, unwarranted and violates Article 13 of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights,” said the Bukit Katil MP. “I fully agree that his was politically motivated. We would like to known who is updating them on the case against Anwar, because he was allowed to enter the country before without issues.” – The Star.

This statement is a humiliation to the Japanese government. What about the integrity and the credibility of the leader?

In his Facebook, Nga wrote: “The Japanese government bowed down to UMNO until Anwar Ibrahim was denied entry. Congratulations! Najib is getting more powerful.

Is Nga saying that UMNO has the power to order Japan government to do something?

On January 21, 2014 the Star wrote an article titled, “Official: Anwar failed to satisfy conditions”.

Under Japanese laws, a person who had been imprisoned for more than a year can be denied entry into the country, as stipulated under Article 5 of the Immigration Control and Refugee Recognition Act.

Japan's new Prime Minister?
Now I’m wondering is this Japan’s new Prime Minister?

In my posts Now Trending: #Kangkung and PKNS Issue: An Example Of Good Governance?,  I asked about the integrity and the credibility of the opposition leaders.

Maybe integrity and the credibility means nothing to them and their loyal supporters.
