Testimonies

(6 km W from epicenter)
Earthquake started suddenly and lasted for about 10 seconds of intense shaking. The earthquake alert sounded only after shaking had stopped, maybe because I was so close to the epicenter.

Osaka (16 km S from epicenter)
My whole group woke up to everything shaking loudly in our air bnb on the fifth floor of our appartment in Osaka. There was about 5-8 seconds of intense shaking then about 20 seconds after was swaying. I was stumbling around the appartment and it felt hard to keep my ballance.

In a hotel 8th floor at Universal City. Our building swayed for around 10-15 seconds and everything stopped. Nothing else happened.

Shaking for a couple of seconds. Strong enough to have some bottles and other items fall over. Two more shakes after that, a couple minutes later, one brief and maybe 2 seconds short, the second one hardly noticable and not even a second long.

Nara (30 km SE from epicenter)
Second earthquake after a lighter one on Friday(?) night. Quite some shaking, water spilling out of the aquarium (without fish, no casualties 😀). Grabbed the children and ran out to meet the neighbours on the street. Doors of cupboards in the kitchen blocked by safety mechanism, worked nicely. Power, water okay, don't see any damage at the house. School and Kindergarten continue.
