Experiencing an earthquake in Japan.

This week, Monday at 9:23pm, an earthquake hit Ibaraki prefecture, about 80km from where I'm living at the moment. It just so happened that I was recording a new song idea on my iPad at the time and captured the moment it hit. My mobile phones earthquake alarm started ringing and everything started shaking. I just had enough time to open the bedroom door and jump under a table with my guitar still in my hand. It quickly died down after that. Quite scary but it was only a small one, although it was the largest I've personally felt during my time in Japan. At the epicenter in Omitama City, Ibaraki, the quake measured 5.6 on the Richter scale.

The only casualty so far seems to have been a teenage boy who jumped out of bed too quickly and broke his arm. It seems that the stronger and much more devastating earthquake that struck Kumamoto city in Kyushu just a couple of weeks ago is still very fresh in peoples minds.

Statistically, Tokyo experiences a massive quake every 70 years or so. It's been 93 years and counting since the last big one. That was the 7.9 quake in 1923 that killed over 140,000 people. Researchers at Tokyo university warned 3 years ago that the chances of a powerful quake hitting Tokyo are 70% in the next 4 years.

I'm going to look into earthquake emergency kits.
