Just 3 years before the Great Japan earthquake, its neighbor China has also suffered from a massive quake. It resulted to even more deaths of 200,000. Several counties were affected by the earthquake and so the death toll was that high. There were also a lot of houses destroyed due to the intensity of the movement. Rivers and seas overflowed, causing the death of more people.
