It also struck off the coast of Japan’s northern main island of Hokkaido, according to Japan’s meteorological agency.
The agency said it was centred about 60 kilometres below the ocean’s surface and east of Etorofu island a Russian held island that is also claimed by Japan.
Officials said it was unlikely to cause injuries or damage because of its depth and distance from the coast. ■
