Japan sits on the “ring of fire,” a horseshoe-shaped ring that goes from South America to North America across Alaska and Russia and down Japan to southeast Asia. This ring represents the vast majority of earthquakes experienced on Earth and outlines roughly where the Pacific oceanic plate is subducting underneath continental plates to the East, North, and West.
