Earthquake fun

Yes, I did have the fun of a short walk along the track after the train stopped a few hundred metres short of the station. Followed by the rather longer walk to Tsukuba in the dark after it became clear that facilities at the primary school at Banpakukinenkoen (local emergency evacuation point) did nor extend to food!

All very orderly but I'm looking forward to getting home, it looks like the trains may start up again but it's not entirely clear how soon or completely.

PS Thanks to all for your thoughts. It's basically just disruption here, nothing like the devastation that I've now finally seen on the news.
