An earthquake with a magnitude of 5.1 was recorded on Saturday in the central Japanese prefecture of Chiba, east of Tokyo; there is no threat of a tsunami, according to the country's national meteorological department.

Axar.az reports citing foreign media that the epicenter of the aftershocks was located in the southern part of Boso Peninsula, at a depth of about 40 km.

Data on the victims and the destruction has not been reported yet. The tremors were felt by residents throughout the metropolitan region, including the prefectures of Tokyo and Kanagawa.

Japan is located in a seismically active zone known as the Ring of Fire and regularly suffers from powerful earthquakes. The 2011 9.0-magnitude earthquake and the following tsunami killed over 15,000 people and caused the Fukushima nuclear plant disaster.
