A 6.1-MAGNITUDE earthquake jolted the Japanese capital Tokyo and surrounding areas yesterday evening, reportedly injuring more than 20 people, but the Japan Meteorological Agency said there was no tsunami risk.

The quake sent buildings swaying, stranded commuters, knocked products off store shelves and triggered emergency warnings blaring from the phones of local residents, intended to give them time to take shelter.
