On March 11, 2011, a magnitude 9.0 earthquake hits Japan, triggering a massive tsunami that claimed more than 18,000 lives.
On April 20, 2013, a magnitude 7.0 earthquake strikes Lushan, Sichuan. From the startling contrasts between the two countries after the earthquake, you will find Japan, an earthquake-prone country, shows more calm and social order in the face of sudden disaster.
