A Japanese man has been describing how he survived the moment the tsunami struck his car with the entire event captured on video.

The man who isn't named describes in a telephone interview what happened when the enormous wave hit Asahi City in Chiba Prefecture: "When I came to the fishing port and turned the corner I could see the wall of water. At that moment I could do nothing else but keep driving. In the middle of that situation my car was taken by the wave.".
