If you're interested in the Earthquakes, install the WeatherNews App on your iPhone (WNN) - although its only in Japanese, its very useful for things like Earthquakes, and Weather reports, etc. Apparently there was a small quake at 21:11 off Choshi.. But yes, Hokkaido has had a rather large number of earthquakes over the past few days ranging from 1-5 on the Japanese scale (around the Nakagawa area).... North Western tip of the Island.
