Osaka is a prefecture situated on the Japanese island of Honshu, western Japan, east of Japan’s sixth largest city Kobe.

The 6.1-magnitude earthquake on Monday burst water mains, halted factory operations and knocked over walls and furniture.

Currently, the death toll from the quake stands at four, with 380 residents injured.

Collapsing walls tragically killed a nine-year-old girl on her way to school, and also crushed an 80-year old man.

Furniture falling resulted in two more deaths, with an 85-year-old man killed by a bookcase and an 81-year-old woman trapped by a dresser in her home.

How far is Osaka from Tokyo?
Osaka is situated on the western side of Japan, on the main Japanese island of Honshu.

Tokyo is Japan’s capital, having been granted capital status in 1869.

Situated on the southeastern side of the main island Honshu, Tokyo is in the Kanto region which includes the Izu Islands and Ogasawara Islands.

The distance between Osaka and Tokyo is 501 kilometres (311.3 miles) and would take six hours to travel by car.

However, the Shinkansen Bullet Train between Tokyo and Osaka only takes around two hours and 30 minutes.

Osaka, one of 47 prefectures across Japan, continues to be hit with earthquakes as authorities work to resolve the damage.
