Japan is frequently ravaged by disasters such as typhoons and earthquakes. These disasters can cause destruction to buildings.


Typhoons hit Japan each year, but these typhoons are more common to occur on Kyushu and Shikoku island. Typhoons often destroy town dwellings and fields. Typhoons only occur in the summer or autumn season and they often bring a lot of rain near the grid where they occur.


Earthquakes only destroy town dwellings and not fields, but earthquakes can also level larger buildings such as temples and castles.
