6.4-magnitude earthquake strikes off the coast of Japan

A 6.4-magnitude quake has hit just off the Japanese coast.

The epicenter was located 24 miles deep, 116km south-southeast of the Kagoshima area.

Local authorities have so far ruled out the possibility of a tsunami.

Seismic activity is relatively common in Japan, due to its geographic location in the Pacific Ring of Fire.
