A 7.3 magnitude earthquake struck this morning off the coast of Japan causing a relatively small tsunami and an evacuation of coastal areas.
Yumiko Ono, managing editor for the Wall Street Journal's Japanese language website, joins us from Tokyo to share Japan's media response and market reaction. Memorial services were held on Friday morning to commemorate the 19th year anniversary of the Great Hanshin Earthquake.
About JDPThe task and mission of the Japan Daily Press is to engage Asia and the World with a never-ceasing flow of news and editorials on various facets of Japan.


The earthquake, which occurred in 1995, hit the city of Kobe in western Japan and nearby areas, killing 6,434 people.
People joined the memorial services, including some survivors of the 2011 Tohoku earthquake and tsunami.
We plan to keep our readers up-to-date on Japanese politics, economy, society, and culture with our daily news. Isamu Uenishi lost his father in the earthquake and has been visiting every monument erected in the area to mourn for the victims.


Others commemorated the earthquake victims in the Tohoku region and held smaller memorial services there.
13-year old Mako Oikawa, one of the participants in the event in Ofunato in Iwata, said that she “wants to continue to speak for the dead in Tohoku the same way people have been doing in Kobe.” Prime Minister Shinzo Abe, for his part, offered his condolences while at a meeting for disaster management in Tokyo.
