The quake struck at 6:12 am (local time) off the east coast of Japan’s Honshu island in the Pacific Ocean, according to USGS, at a depth of 38.9 kilometres.

The quake hit 33 kilometres south east of the nearest city of Ofunato.

Japan’s islands are situated at the conjuncture of several tectonic plates and experience a number of relatively violent quakes every year.

The Pacific Tsunami Warning Center said there is no threat of a tsunami, and the Tohuku Electric Company, which operates the Onagawa nuclear power plant, told Japanese broadcaster NHK there have been no reports of irregularities.

Some train service was disrupted as tracks were checked for damage, NHK reported.
