Earthquakes are common in Japan, one of the world’s most seismically active areas. Japan accounts for about 20 percent of the world’s earthquakes of magnitude 6 or greater.

Yeah, and they rely on ageing nuclear power plants with fudged safety and upgrade inspection reports. Awesome! Is there any wonder the anti-nuclear lobby is gaining momentum in Japan?

It was a pretty long shaker today.

Irrelevant. What happened to Japan's nuclear reactors today? Nothing. Anti-nuclear lobby gaining momentum? Lol. You mean you and your 5 friends welcomed a new lobbyist? Omedetou.

@shi...Nigata earthquake has still kept the worlds most advanced earthquake proof NPPs shut down. Oi...well, the list is endless, mass media never mentions what happened to Daini or Tokai NPPs. Earthquakes and volcanoes are serious. Instead of building reactors, we should build sturdy houses with solar panels, equipped with emergency supplies for at least two weeks.

Yes, good point. Daini shut down properly despite its advanced age. For what it's worth, I agree. My roof is covered with solar panels and I do keep emergency supplies on hand. Especially lots of clean water.
