So i was lying on my futon last night about 11pm and all of a sudden the building started to shake. Not as big as the last one. I thought it was just a car going past or something. As ill-informed and earthquake innocent, as I am. It stopped and then began again and the lights in the room were swinging. I actually think that it was an aftershock from the earthquake that occurred at 8:30pm in the prefecture right near mine called Chiba. Have a look at the maps that are on this link to check out where the earthquakes were. The first one shows the earthquake in Chiba at 8:30pm and the second shows the ones all over Japan and you can see the one that i felt. I look at this website everyday to see where the earthquakes are. It is really interesting to see how many they have here.

This website is really good for tracking typhoons that might be coming to Japan. In case any of you are interested. I think all of this is very interesting because in Alice Springs we dont have any of these things.
On a really positive point, it is finally starting to cool down. I am so glad. And it is almost october so that means much cooler weather here in Japan.
