The Japanese Nuclear Radiation Authority has not reported damages to the Onagawa nuclear power plant as well as smaller nuclear facilities, including an experimental reactor, or the defunct Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant.

However, the disaster shut down a number of public facilities, among Japan’s vaunted shinkansen or bullet trains.

The disaster occurred 10 years after a 9 Richter scale earthquake struck Japan on March 11 2011, triggering a tsunami that killed more than 18 thousand people and causing a meltdown at the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant as other damage.

Like Indonesia, Japan is also located in the Indo-Pacific ring of fire, making the country vulnerable to earthquakes and tsunamis.
