Minato (Japan) (285 km NW from epicenter)(no details): I felt the bed rocking backwards and forwards and realised what it was but my 2 sons in another room were not woken by it. (My husband and I were already awake ready to get ready to leave for England that morning) (via EMSC)
Narita (Japan) (277 km NW from epicenter)(no details): I was sound asleep and woke up and I was rolling from side to side in my bed. I got up and it was difficult to walk and got a torch and then thought about what to do and went back into bed. Spoke to other people later in the street and they also had the same experience.
