The quake struck just over 50 miles from the city of Fukushima where the nuclear disaster occurred in 2011.

Witnesses said they had felt a 10-second long shake during the tremor at around 7.30pm local time.

The US Geological Survey said today’s earthquake had struck at a depth of around 50 miles under the sea.

One witness told earthquake monitoring service EMSC that the quake produced a ‘weak but long shake’ lasting about 10 seconds.

Another said their heater had moved around on its four wheels while making a sound.

Officials in Fukushima prefecture warned residents that there could be aftershocks and directed them to official public safety advice.
