The Japan Meteorological Agency recorded a Magnitude 4.2 Earthquake at a depth of about 30 km, about 6 km off the coast of the Chiba Peninsula on Honshū Island, at about 1.10 am on Wednesday 3 August 2016 Japan Standard Time (about 4.10 pm on Tuesday 2 August GMT). There are no reports of any damage or casualties associated with this event, people have reported feeling it locally.

Japan has a complex tectonic situation, with parts of the country on four different tectonic plates. Eastern Honshū area lies on the boundary between the Pacific, Eurasian and Philipine Plates, where the Pacific Plate is passing beneath the Eurasian and Philipine Plates as it is subducted into the Earth. This is not a smooth process; the rocks of the two plates constantly stick together, only to break apart again as the pressure builds up, causing Earthquakes in the process.
