Not again in Japan!!!


A strong earthquake with a preliminary magnitude of 6.3 hit eastern Japan on Monday, the Japan Meteorological Agency said, shaking buildings in the capital Tokyo.

The epicentre of the earthquake was off the coast of Chiba prefecture, neighboring Tokyo, the agency said, adding that no tsunami warning had been issued.

Japan is still struggling to to stabilise the nuclear power plant at Fukushima, almost a month after the earthquake and tsunami that caused the problems.
Fukushima is one of more than 50 nuclear facilities in Japan. The BBC's Rachel Harvey visited the home of Japan's first nuclear reactor, Tokaimura, to assess people's attitudes to nuclear energy
