Nihon Igai Zenbu Chinbotsu (日本以外全部沈没, lit. "Everything Other than Japan Sinks") is a 2006 Japanese black comedy film directed by Minoru Kawasaki. It is a parody of the 2006 film Sinking of Japan.

The original short novel written by Yasutaka Tsutsui criticizes nationalism and racism. It also describes humans as powerless against disaster.


In the year 2011 the greatest tectonic disaster in the history of mankind occurs. As a result of catastrophic earthquakes North and South America, Eurasia, Africa and Australia have sunken underwater while the Japanese islands remain untouched thanks to the Chinese land which had sunk and went underneath.

Japan suddenly discovers that it is the destination for all the world's surviving refugees. Consequently, they are all forced to make uncomfortable adjustments in order to share the world's last habitable landmass. However, they finally discovered that the Japan islands will eventually sink as well since the Chinese lands supporting them is moving rapidly towards the Pacific Ocean.
