Japan and the West coast of the United States on are what is called "The Pacific Ring of Fire", and that is because it is where the Pacific Plate and others converge on each other. This in turn causes volcanoes to erupt after magma is displaced and is allowed to run freely up cracks in the Earth's crust. All along the Pacific Ring of Fire are volcanoes...just so happends Japan and the West Coast of the USA are there as well. :)
