The Japanese Meteorological Agency canceled the tsunami warning that was issued after 6.7-magnitude earthquake hit the east coast of Japan near Honshu on Thursday morning.
The quake centered off the coast of Iwate prefecture occurred at 6:51 a.m. Japan time. The agency earlier warned that a tsunami of about one-and-a-half meter (20 inches) could follow.
The U.S. Pacific Tsunami warning center said that it did not expect a destructive Pacific-wide tsunami.
The 19.9 miles (32 kilometers) wide quake, caused tremors across the northern half of the country, including Tokyo, a local media reported.
The quake was followed by several smaller aftershocks, according to the Japan Meteorological Agency.
There were no immediate reports of damage, injuries or deaths.
