Because of the tsunami?

The last couple of days we have cycled along the Pacific coast. The weather is fine, the forested mountains fall into the ocean, fishing villages clench themselves on the slopes and the road is clenched on the edge. Fantastic scenery.
everywhere where the coast faces the ocean there are enormous concrete walls and against them hundreds (thousands) of concrete shapes have been dumped in order to function as wave-brakers. So far for the romantic coastal scenery.
Of course the tsunami that hit the country some years ago came from this side. Is this the reaction of the Japanese coast protection authority on this catastrophe?
It's our guess. The concrete has not yet been overgrown with algae, so seem to have been dumped there quite recently.
