The quake struck at 2.28pm local time, the agency said. Its epicentre was located near Torishima, an island about 560km south of Tokyo. It was about 370km deep.
The mid-afternoon quake swayed buildings in Tokyo but it did not disrupt the final of the Emperor’s Cup football tournament under way at the National Stadium.
