So there was a level seven earthquake about 100kms from where we live. In Kakuda it was a level five. It still was pretty crazy how much everything shook. We didn’t have any problems though, just a bicycle and one plant falling over. On the news though there was landslides in a few places and people got stuck in trains for a few hours. The trains still weren’t running that night. I was really glad I didn’t have to go to work yesterday. I would have probably got stuck on the train. So far I’ve felt 11 earthquakes since I came to Japan in April. Two of them have been big ones and the rest have been small.

    Ever get that ghost feeling that your cell phone is vibrating when it isn’t? After living in Japan for a year and a half I would get that feeling about earthquakes. I would think “Is that an earthquake?” and it was really me shaking my knees.

    I really enjoyed them and kind miss it. Luckily the last time we visited I was able to enjoy a 2~3 magnitude.

    Well after feeling a 5, 2 or 3’s aren’t that scary now.
