This paper is devoted to the memory of the outstanding Japanese scientist. In 1896, Fusakichi Omori discovered the law of the aftershocks evolution that bears his name. We represent the Omori law in the form of a differential equation. This allows us to take into account the non-stationarity of rocks in the earthquake source, which "cools down" after the main shock.
