Figure 2 in the body of the original paper regarding inundation and wave heights of the 2011 Tohoku tsunami along the coastline of Eastern Honshu was taken from an earlier Japanese publication which was erroneously translated, thus does not represent the correct values. This Fig. 2 has been substituted by a new Fig. 2 which represents the actual corrected values of inundation and wave heights of the 2011 Tohoku tsunami along the coastline of Eastern Honshu as determined by the comprehensive survey summarized by Mori et al. (2011) and by Mori et al. (2012) or other investigations. Therefore, the caption of the new Fig. 2 has been corrected to reflect these changes and the text in the section of the original paper with heading of “Near and Far Field Effects” needs to include the reference Mori et al. (2012).
Fig. 2

Inundation and wave heights in meters of the 2011 Tsunami along the Tohoku coast as determined by a comprehensive post event survey (Mori et al., 2012) (The date 29 Dec 2012 on the top right side of the figure above, refers to the completion of curation of the 2011 tsunami data)

Nothing more in the subsequent text of the original paper refers to Fig. 2 and none of the subsequent descriptions of tsunami effects, impact, mechanism or conclusions contradict the findings of surveys as summarized by Mori et al. (2011) and by Mori et al. (2012) or other investigations.
