There was no immediate tsunami warning following the quake.

Saturday's earthquake which struck off the Japanese coast, geologists said, shook buildings in Tokyo and set off car alarms.

Despite the huge power of the quake, there was no risk of a tsunami as the earthquake was located too deep inside the earth, The Pacific Tsunami Warning Centre reported.

Residential buildings swayed for around a minute as the quake built in intensity around 8:30pm (9:30pm AEST).
