Genroku 1703, forearc & arc.
Kanto 1923, forearc & arc.

Both crustal relaxation events with relatively small tsunami.

Fuji is located in the backarc curl near the tightening Japan alps megathrust.

Possibility of a magma filled fracture arriving from IZU-Genroku and getting through the compressed backarc to reach Fuji is relatively small.

Tohoku 2011 compressed the crust @ Fuji.

Will keep watching that space.

Have a nice day: Ag
