Answer: In Japan, wooden buildings have been used for many years, and people often say, “Traditional wooden structures, such as temples, are very resistant to earthquakes. They bend like willow to avoid building up stress.” We have actually seen wooden buildings swaying a lot in large earthquakes. They are flexible like willow, and are in fact resistant to earthquakes to some extent. Unfortunately, however, in huge earthquakes such as the Great Kanto Earthquake and the Great Hanshin-Awaji Earthquake, wooden buildings designed and constructed using traditional Japanese construction methods also collapsed. Traditional wooden buildings have been evaluated based on seismic engineering, and this revealed that although traditional construction methods are in part based on seismic engineering, many aspects are not.

Hope it helps you;)
