Seems everything is ok.

Reuters


No tsunami was seen as a result of the quake and there were no reports of damage to local police as of 11:30 p.m. (1430 GMT), about 10 minutes after the quake occurred, public broadcaster NHK said.

There were no abnormalities at Tohoku Electric Power Co's Higashidori nuclear plant in northern Japan, NHK said, citing the utility.


No injuries or damage reported as of yet.

Hopefully everyone is okay.

It was pretty deep, so hopefully there isn't much damage. I would be more concerned if the quake would have been shallower.

Was chatting to a friend at the time and they mentioned it, they don't mention them all so it must of been a bit larger than normal, but they weren't concerned at all and went on to chatting about other random stuff right after, and they're in tokyo.
