Keep your heads down, stay safe, and get the bottles of water and emergency supplies together. Highly likely to be aftershocks - possibly bigger.

Got a big jolt up here in the Minami Alps. Luckily the 防災速報 alerted us and everyone else so we where prepared.

A strong quake at 10m probably felt stronger than the 6. Instant message on the smartphone. Didn't feel anything in West Hyogo.

I drove around the Noto peninsula last summer so I'm "in the know" about the area. Its a very dated area, lots of old buildings. That area doesn't typically get a lot of quakes. Could be a sign of increased seismic activity throughout Japan.

A map showing the epicenter would be very helpful since the majority of us don't know japans map that well , hope everyone is well and safe.

The JMA posts maps of earthquakes.

Didnt feel anything here either old chap

Surprised about Harukas lifts being stopped, one hour! Can you believe it! During pandemic we had annual passes 2000 yen I think. The cafeteria upstairs prices were a third less than usual and practically empty, it was wonderful.

That sounds about right. Masks only of course.
