Nihon Chinbotsu: Kibo no Hito

Nihon Chinbotsu: Kibo no Hito is a Japanese Science Fiction tv serial with English Subtitles released on TBS.

Shortly after the 2020 Tokyo Olympics, a major earthquake hits Japan. Amidst the chaos, the Mutou siblings Ayumu (a middle school student and track and field athlete) and her younger brother Gou (an elementary schooler and video game enthusiast) attempt to escape the city with their family and friends.

Written after immense research from 1964 to 1973 by Sakyo Komatsu, Japan Sinks was a story about the possibility that the country of Japan undergoes a traumatic experience that literally destroys the entire country via the force of Mother Nature.

When first published, Japan Sinks allowed Komatsu to win the 27th annual Japan Mystery Writers Association Award.

In terms of the plot, the book starts out following a small Japanese fishing boat that anchors near a small island off the southern coast of Japan.

The next day, the anglers wake to see an empty ocean as the island literally disappeared beneath the waves. Geologists and specialists in deep-sea research begin to investigate the matter.

However, the answer that they find stuns them all and will eventually stun the world as the evidence piles up that the island archipelago of Japan, one of the great economic powerhouses of the world, will sink into the Pacific Ocean.

The race is on to save as much of the population of Japan before their physical homeland disappears forever.
