I wasn't going to be posting a report today, but events of last night require one.

Last night at 10:08pm, a strong earthquake measuring M6.8 rocked the northern region of Nagano with areas around Otari and Hakuba villages experiencing lots of the worst of it. Tremors were felt over a large region of central Japan with Otari recording a strong shindo 6- and Hakuba a shindo 5+ on the Japanese 'shindo' scale.

I wasn't actually in Hakuba yesterday, but here in Nagano City it was also a very significant series of earthquakes.

I was actually wondering whether to mention a few small shakes in previous days in my last report, but decided against it as small tremors are nothing unusual for Japan...

It's still too early to get the complete picture of the damage, but thankfully as of the moment there doesn't seem to be any reports of fatalities, though a number of people seem to have been injured. Images also coming in of some buildings that have collapsed in some areas, a few roads blocked and roads that will be needing some repair.

Smaller aftershocks have continued through the night since the main one, and this morning as is always the case with large quakes, there's a chance of aftershocks continuing for a while, so do take care if you are in the area.

It's really not a morning when people are thinking about winter sports, but Happo-one and Tsugaike Kogen resorts have released statements both saying that while they haven't seen any major damage to facilities at the moment, they are currently checking everything and no doubt all of the facilities in the valley will be doing the same.

Update: Hakuba 47 have announced that there has been no damage due to the earthquake.

Our thoughts are with everyone in the affected area and I'll post an update on the situation tomorrow.
