    Wow, that's a big one. Fortunately Hokkaido isn't too heavily populated.

    I used to live in Japan and there were little earthquakes all the time. Nothing serious, just a lot
    of shaking. Still, it was pretty scary, living in a paper and wood house that was heated by
    kerosene type heaters in every room.
