Kyoto Earthquake

淡路島で震度6弱 JR西など一時運休

This morning around 5:30 am we had a big shake in Kyoto.

The tremor was strong enough that it woke me from a deep sleep.

I fell back to sleep and promptly forgot the episode until the morning news reminded us.

According to reports, the earthquake registered just under 6 on the Japanese scale and was due to plate movement 10 km under Awajishima Island, not far from Kobe and Osaka.

There were no tsunami.

Trains in western Japan briefly were halted.

But life is back to normal and it is a beautiful day perfect for getting out.
