If you want information with a few photos, this is a good site.

Fukushima never should have been allowed to start up forty years ago.. For forty years they only had one access path for commercial power to the Fukushima site. They never completed a sea wall. To confirm that just look at the road down from Reactor 4 to the quay-wall. It does not go through an intact sea wall. The Emergency Diesel generators were in sunken depressions just a few feet above sea level in the Turbine rooms. The Japanese built those turbine buildings on hollowed out rock that was destined to be flooded if a three meter tsunami came inshore. They had a four meter tsunami as measured right off shore so they were royally screwed from the get go. They were supposed to design the plant for a five or six meter tsunami, but it is obvious that did not even try.

seems the human race is great at creating errors hope one day we'll learn from them

it's a gif

That isn't actually true - the hill was 5-10 meters higher and they removed the top of the hill to get down to bedrock and make pumping coolant water easier.

They were focused on earthquakes almost entirely. Unfortunately the earthquake didn't turn out to be the biggest problem.

If they put all the backup generation on top of the bluff - those generators worked last time and will work the next time.

The problem is everyone fights the last battle. What caused the foundation problems? Can they strengthen the foundation on 5 and 6, or apply some lessons learned on 5 and 6 before restarting them? Someone needs to do a from scratch review of plant safety if they are going to restart 5 and 6.
