A Quake Shakes Kanto Region

A strong quake shook Kanto area today. The authority said it was a magnitude 5.3 quake and there was no tsunami risk. No major damage has been reported. 
The area is on the junction of a number of the Earth’s tectonic plates. That makes strong quakes so often. 
I live in Shimane prefecture and there are few quakes here. As far as I remember, I've got a strong quake only once. I think I couldn't live in Kanto region because of the fear of quakes.
