In my opinion, the reason why Japan’s disaster film industry is very popular is closely related to the country’s own experience and attributes. As an island country, Japan, located on the Pacific Rim seismic belt, has to experience large and small earthquakes. In the 1950s-1960s, Japanese people were recovering from the trauma of World War II. The monster films during this period well reflected the domestic situation and gave the Japanese people a way to sympathize and find ways to vent. When people watch these films, they can easily bring their tragic experience into the world, and then they can get a moment of comfort after seeing a happy ending. This country is full of contrast, difference and innovation. At the same time, the creation of films also jumps out of the natural disasters such as earthquake and fire in the traditional sense. This is also a major reason why Japanese disaster films are fascinating.
