Construction has long been Japan's answer to the threat of natural disaster, even when ecological treasures are in the way. The pristine, mountain-fringed Katoku beach, for example, will soon be filled with a concrete wall.

@nytimes Oh well. I'm sure that a sufficiently advanced technology will restore it.

@nytimes My god no mention of the safety issue in the heading? As someone in the gulf coast this framing is insane. Build the sea wall in Japan and the Ike duke here too.

@nytimes Watch the YouTube video about this. went there in April and by chance met the guy who’s fighting hard to save thi beach in Amami. The surfing community is behind them but they have big wigs to fight and they need all the support they can get. So awesome@@nytimes has reported it.

@nytimes It’s appalling what the government in Japan will do just to get rid of its excess tax money so they can continue to charge the same tax year in and year out. A completely flawed tax system that is basically ruining the water ways - rivers and beaches and the environment in Japan
