Stories like this do nothing but make people nervous and suspicious. If a similar sized earthquake happened here in Japan NO ONE would be reading about it in the news.

More fear-mongering...way to go! (NOT)

So this is a natural quake and quite a weak one at that. Why make news out of it?

Not sure but it made news overseas too (BBC, etc).

This earthquake M 3.4 can be natural and it's nothing in Japan to have this worldly news. But for sure, it's a aftershock vibration of many nuclear experiments NK did in northern region. One day a big one will come and no earthquake infra-structure there. I only hope a big one will comes to they learn those experiments will damage their own land.

Hope a bunch of those laughing note taking generals were there to record this seismic event

In a time of launching missiles over Japan, I am interested in potential NK nuclear tests. And actually an earthquake caused by a nuclear underground test in Japan WOULD make the news big time.

Yubaru, Japan does not test nuclear weapons. DPRK has been testing nuclear weapons and this could be a smaller device capable of being carried on one of their missiles.

better there than here or a test over the Pacific ocean. It's polluted and ruined by human for years.
