SINGAPORE – Mere seconds after the earthquake alert sounded, Ms Regina Hong felt the whole house starting to shake violently.
Ms Hong, who works as a translator in Takikawa city, about 90km from Hokkaido’s largest city of Sapporo, said: “We were woken up at around 3am and had to shield our heads as the whole house was shaking.”
She has been living in Takikawa for about a year with her Singaporean husband, who works as an English teacher.
