Absolutely great documentary. I never knew how many problems that Tokyo had in trying to survive. Thirty-six million people subject to typhoons, earthquakes, regular floods, liquifaction of the soil underlying the city, parts of the city sinking because they emptied the groundwater reservoirs underneath it, and now rising sea levels. The Japanese are so resilient!
