There are recorded tsunami in 20th century over 500 m high.
In case people forget:
There are already seawalls in Japan:
The problem is expense. E.g. Holland must upgrade
their dikes to cope with stormfloods due to higher
sealevel to the tune of a terabuck or more.
Unlike Holland and Northern Germany, Japan
has lots of mountains. Frankly, flat coasts
of any kind make me nervous, long-term.
