JAPAN has been rocked by a 5.5 magnitude earthquake, striking 78 miles from the nation’s main island of Honshu and triggering shockwaves that could be felt across the country.

The quake is not believed to have triggered a tsunami after striking in the dead of night at roughly 1.30am local time (4.40pm GMT).

Japan is located on the edge of the so-called ‘Ring of Fire’ – a hotbed of seismic activity on the edge of one of the planet’s tectonic plates.

It is currently unknown as to whether there was any damage to buildings or injuries caused by the event.

State reports claim the strike was close to Fukishima – striking off the east coast of the island.

Residents and tourists alike quickly took to Twitter to share their experiences of the quake.

One wrote: “That was an earthquake alright…pretty long one too, but everything is safe.”

Another added: “Just felt an earthquake on my last night in Japan, Jesus.”

However some were more glib about the natural phenomenon.

One person wrote: “Nothing like deciding its time to go to bed and a 5.7 earthquake rocking you to sleep.”
