A massive sudden (1 day) collapse and rise of land has occurred along the coast of Hokkaido Japan.
Major global earthquake activity is taking place, and serious crustal movement is obviously underway in the region around North Japan.
The new land began rising from the sea yesterday morning (April 24, 2015) with just a 1 meter rise (3 feet), then began rising rapidly, the event is still ongoing as of April 25th into 26th 2015. At the same time of the land rising, the area around the rise began to subside.
One area displacing the other.
The new land mass has now risen over 50 feet above the water (near 1,000 feet long), and near 10 meters wide (30 feet)! Not ‘small’ by any means, and a very rare occurrence to top it off.
This is being attributed to crustal movement in the area.
The pressure of the uplift has now caused minor landslides behind the rise.

Video report from NHK here:
April 24th, 2015
Translation from Japanese NHK article:
“Experts found that residents of the ground in Rausu coast of eastern Hokkaido has raised over about 300 meters height 10 m width and “do not know exact cause, but seen the coastline has been raised.” we talk at around the 24th morning 6 around Rausu Horomoe the town in the Shiretoko Peninsula of eastern, and noticed that the ground is raised about one meter than usual when the residents who live near is a walk on the beach, then, 5:00 where it was found in around time, is that even the ground had been raised significantly.
Town is that the coastline had been raised over about height 300 meters, 10 meters width where was confirmed scene around 18:00.
It depends on the police rather than housing and road around and it is that it does not damage to the human and buildings injury.
Emiko Funaki who lives near (60 years) “Do not than has been collapsed cliff and sea bottom is raised to. Is like a movie, such a thing you can not believe happen” has been talking to.
When you more in Kushiro Local Meteorological Observatory, activities of volcanoes and earthquakes in the vicinity Rausu is that it has not been confirmed on the 24th.
Yuichiro Tanioka Professor of Hokkaido earthquake volcano research Observation Center who looked at the scene photos of you do not know the cause that was “clearly, but sediment is not without wearing a stone, even if thinking, it is not a landslide. Coastline is raised and can be considered.
First of all we are talking about as it is necessary to examine whether “is happening crust of this area is.
Town will have to be investigated in the vicinity of the site along with the way of personnel from at the 25th 8 am as the cause is not clear.
Yuichiro Tanioka Professor of detailed Hokkaido earthquake volcano research Observation Center, such as the geology on which I saw the photo of the site, I do not know the cause that was “clearly, sediment is not without wearing the stone, if the landslides and be considered no.
Coastline I considered to have raised.
First of all I am talking about the need “to examine what is happening crust of this area is.”
UPDATE April 28, 2015 200pm CDT:
Japan Earthquake strikes near the sea floor rise area!
April 28: After days of silence, we now see the Northern part of Japan show movement.
This earthquake just occurred VERY CLOSE TO THE LOCATION which has experienced the sea floor rise and ground collapse !
So much for the rise and collapse being blamed on “ocean waves” !
Also, this is the area I just warned several hours ago,warned yesterday, and warned 3 days ago in my earthquake forecast. North Japan near Hokkaido .
UPDATE: April 27, 2015
I made RT on this Japan coast rising story. The “official” explanation is ….. OCEAN WAVES caused the event. Saying that ocean waves caused the cliff to collapse, and that is what caused the ground to rise from the sea floor.
Now the officials in Japan are saying a landslide caused the ground to rise. Never mind the fact that the original article from the Japanese specifically says NOT a landslide ….quote (translated from Japanese) :
“..sediment is not without wearing a stone, even if thinking, it is not a landslide. Coastline is raised and can be considered. First of all we are talking about as it is necessary to examine whether “is happening crust of this area is.”
Locals in the original report appear to say that the sea floor rise caused the cliff collapse. Media saying the cliff collapse caused the sea floor rise.
See how this is going?! Blaming it on ocean waves though.. lol.. now that’s funny.
