    That’s the only thing that I don’t like about living in Japan, and that’s all of the fees, random fees, and hidden fees 🤦‍♂️ the pretty much hate fees for everything and it’s way to expensive. Idk why they charge 20k plus for bathroom customization for the bathtub and toilet smh a toilet cost 100 bucks and a bathtub doesn’t cost more than a thousand or 2, so they pretty much charge more than 10 thousand just for installing smh. Might as well do it yourself but o wait u can’t bcuz they don’t let u and if they do allow it here comes all of these crazy amount of fees for any lil things, but wait there’s still more Hiden fees lol so then the total becomes overwhelming building the house yourself or just installing a toilet, bathtub etc that people tend to say fuck that never mind. N here I thought that Chinese n Indians were greedy but naw it seems the Japanese system/government are.

    The new retaining walls are solid. I've seen them put in and then the land raised around them. It's like giant concrete blocks shaped like a capital "L" so the weight of the land won't allow it to tip. But... getting land with no retaining walls Isa good idea :)

    I'm in school for geography and geology, and the main focus is climate. In studying natural disasters, we talked about Japan a lot because of how it was created, and how even still it's extremely dangerous, and heavily populated for how prone to natural disasters it is. That being sad, Japan has done an incredible job at making it safer for everyone who lives there. I think in the US, we should be taking more precautions and regulations like you guys have! The unfortunate part of nature is that oftentimes the most beautiful places are also the most dangerous.

    Odd that the local government doesn't help with something that is to some extent(edit, scratch that, is their fault), their fault and throws that on the property owners. Hear me out. The system that regulates the condition and function of those structures belongs/is the government (local or otherwise). The government not only has the responsibility and access to resources far above the means of the citizen, but also is obliged by the basis of their existence (raison d'être) to do so (either constitution or laws, obviously, we're talking about normal governments, not extremes). So in my mind, asking the citizen to fork out something that has been known (i'm an architect that deals in restoring old houses here in Europe) for decades (those drawings you showed us with the go, no-go retaining wall system) to be suspect and not up to modern standards, is a bit much. Kinda reminds me of a story from Edmonton Canada, where a fellow ALfirst content creator was asked to fork out close to a million Canadian dollars, so that he obtain the permit to create an addition to his historical shop, because the city needed to put a fire hydrant on his property so that it would be ok. In case that wasn't explained properly, the mayor's office, and the zoning council basically admitted in legal form that they did not spend the money afforded to them in the interest of the citizens, to update and bring to day, the fire hydrant system on which the lives of the people in the area (a lot of people, a school, et cetera) depended in case of a fire and that they wanted an individual of moderate means, to do their work. Something is rotten with our governments, severely rotten. Sorry about the rant, but the story about the little girl just pissed me off, that kind of structure is the local government's responsibility, as they are the ones who regulate it. I don't suggest they should fully take care of it, but neither is asking the citizen to fork the sum when they were lazy and likely corrupt in pushing proper law and regulation. The walls that are accepted standard on that leaflet you showed us are ancient news. It's basically standard here in Europe in certain mountain areas. It's shocking to me that in a region known for earthquakes, it took this much time to figure out that a single file gabion wall is not ok.

    and yea, bathrooms are like safe house during earthquakes. Some have a shell that is moulded and can sustain a certain amount of weight, and the toilet can be used as an emergency water source. Basically a survival cell. So in some old houses, owners would renovate their houses to integrate those toilets just in case something bad happens.

    Any retaining wall over 3 feet needs a footer. The force on it is too great otherwise and it will always fail with time. That's why they've done that.

    As an architect I hope I can tell you fast why the concrete walls are better! 1. They're monolithic, so they don't "crumble" like the stone walls and if they're reinforced with steel (which for foundation structure it's very necessary) they will have much more resistance to earthquakes. 2. The bases you see on the concrete walls are so the walls don't fall on one side like the stone wall in the castle did (if you see the stone walls, they don't have a wide base like the concrete walls have), it helps balance the concrete wall and the steel runs through the wall and the "base" to make it a one stable piece that won't fall on one side) Hope this gives you a little insight on what goes there!
