Stone tablets warn of tsunami dangers along Japan coasts.
Sometimes there is something that is so creepy. You hear of people predicting plane crashes or deaths in the family, but this is kind of spooky. Old Japanese tablets that may have held a warning for future generations.
In the hamlet of Aneyoshi, Iwate Prefecture, in northern Japan a centuries old tablet warns of the danger of tsunamis. The tablets form a crude warning system for Japan, whose long coasts run along major fault lines and is often the target of repeated earthquakes and tsunamis. The coastline is dotted with hundreds of such markers, some more than 600 years old.
