As I was just sat here (in Tokyo) typing some e-mail I felt the familiar feeling of the building wobbling very slightly, and my wind chimes rattling. I turned on NHK to see a fairly big earthquake warning around Kansai (south western Japan) about 6 minutes ago. There were tidal wave warnings and even some photos of affected cities, which is unusual unless it’s a fair size one – NHK usually satisfies itself with text warnings over it’s normal programmings. Hope no one was hurt! [story here, and here].
