Seven years ago, massive waves crashed into coastal cities in Japan, killing over 20,000 people.

Now the government is building huge concrete walls along parts of Japan’s coast to protect it from tsunamis.

But some say the new barriers are too high and could have an impact on tourism.

Al Jazeera’s Rob Matheson reports.

I don't think they need a sea wall… they need to have some kind of new water-collecting system that stops Tsunami. Take advice from the Dutch.

If you could see the wave and shout "run" , then why 2000 people lost their lives .

Lol, that woman is funny, she thinks they dont need a wall because she could just see the Tsnami and shout Run

John Simon Wijaya says:

at the same place, tsunami only happen once in 100-200 years.

so they sacrifice another 99 years for beach view.

The place the wall is built is not made clear. Is it that Japan would build wall wherever there is sea shore?
