An earthquake in Tokyo

Yesterday just as we were having lunch at the company things started shaking. I think the fact that the cafetaria is on the 7th floor of the company building did not help things. Anywho, the trembles lasted for about 20 seconds or so. I think people are a little more used to earthquakes around here than I thought. Not only did it not go beyond someone casually remarking "I think we had a small earthquake" but no newspapers or TV news covered it as far as I could catch.

Today, I found a "Disaster Guide" from Mitaka City Hall - I am hoping it is not a sign that they know something we don't about the upcoming days :P The picture is of the big shelter sign in front of the school close to my apartment.
