    The picture represents the tectonics plates located in Japan.
    Earthquakes are so likely to happen in Japan because this country is located where several tectonics plates meet. Also the areas that are on the boundaries of tectonic plates are more risky for humans because when they move, they produce more damages in the bounds.

    Earthquakes are so common in Japan because the Japanese archipelago is located in an area where many tectonic plates meet many.
