NZ, Japan, earthquakes, and my experience!!

In NZ in February, there was a big earthquake (M6.4) where 28 Japanese people died. Earthquakes are very dangerous so I felt sorry for them. But a month later, in Sendai, Japan a much bigger earthquake occurred. Additionally, a tsunami!! I couldn't expect that.
At that time I was just in Sendai, because it is my hometown. My Sendai's house is near a mountain, so I and my family were all safe. I'd ever had an experience with such a big earthquake. :( I got so scared...It was M9.0!!!
I've never been to NZ. But I felt something familiar to NZ after the earthquake. I want to go there in the future.
