One object fell down in my kitchen from this earthquake. My Au phone early warning earthquake system sounded after the M6 finished. At the tail end of this earthquake it went up and down a little. It was mostly side to side. Hope everybody else is OK.

Really? I didn't feel a thing in north Chiba. I had my amp up pretty loud and was fanging some Black Sabbath. I guess the power of a Marshall amp is greater than that of mother nature. Hope everyone is OK.

I was just searching how to help in that area (like a few day trips from Tokyo) when my building shook. When I looked to see where it was I was surprised and a little freaked out to see it was in the exact spot I was googling. Hope everyone is okay!

Upper 5 on the Japanese scales followed by others up and down the coast. Splashing that water around at the nuclear disaster. Its been quite awhile since there was such a powerful quake.

I was reading in bed here in Shinjuku, and the swaying was quite noticeable, but very gentle. Best to release the energy little by little.

Japan Please Shut down all of your Nuclear Reactors for your peoples sake. The Next Earth movement may be the big one you cannot afford another Nuclear mishap. I have many internet friends in Japan That I hope have Long life's without the fear of radioactive poisoning.

Japan Please Shut down all of your Nuclear Reactors for your peoples sake.

All except two reactors have been shut down since last year. The two operational reactors at KEPCO's Oi plant will shut down next month leaving the country without any operational reactors.

Don't know how long it will take the NRA to decided which reactors can restart.

This is an aftershock of 311.

White_Shinobu I was in the middle of something else as were many others, but did not stop. Why religion has to be your brave act?

Many people start praying God when that shakes. Shinobi and co were already doing it, so they continued.

Funny, I think I was in Saitama at the time and felt????? Nothing, except some other guy mentioning if anyone had felt a tremor, but no did not feel a thing but I really doubt that such a small movement could be called an aftershock of 3/11. Look at New Zealand, they got hit, and hit real hard and then a year later they got hit even worse, but here in Japan so far so good except for the stupid mess up there in Fukushima with the Nuclear power plant radiation leaking etc..
