The magnitude 6.1 quake was centred off the east coast of Chiba Peninsula at a depth of 44.5 kilometres, the US Geological Survey mentioned.
Strong shaking was reported in Chiba and Ibaraki prefectures, however the USGS mentioned there was little probability of significant injury or fatalities.

A robust earthquake hit central Japan on May 5, killing at the very least one particular person and injuring greater than 20 others.
Japan is likely one of the world’s most earthquake-prone nations. An enormous 2011 quake within the nation’s northeast precipitated a devastating tsunami and nuclear plant meltdown.
