Japan Sinks (Nihon chinbotsu) Movie
Scientists forecast that Japan will sink into the Pacific Ocean within forty years, due to the collision of tectonic plates and the subsequent gigantic earthquake. However, Dr. Tadokoro (Etsushi Toyokawa), an oceanic scientist, discovers that the calamity will happen in 338.54 days. To avoid the impending disaster, he presents the results of his scientific research to Prime Minister Yamamoto (Koji Ishizaka) who can scarcely believe him. Meanwhile, devastating earthquakes and volcanic eruptions start to hit Japan, just as Yusuke Tadokoro has predicted.
