揺れ方が違ってた。地鳴りが強くなったような揺れ。ずっと微妙に地鳴りがしてる気がする。いつまた来てもおかしくないような。震源地が近いから?山だから? 富士山大丈夫か?Source

The way of shaking was different from usual. It felt like a strong brontide caused the earthquake. A slight earthquake sound can be still heard. It is not unusual even if another one comes anytime again. Is it because I’m near the epicenter ? is it because mountain ? Is Mt.Fuji ok ?

Another person posted the picture of Mt. Fuji.

It looks like steam is splashing from 2 locations.

Meteorological bureau held an emergency press conference to deny the connection between the series of earthquake to eruption of Mt.Fuji. This statement is making people more anxious because Japanese government has been deceiving its own people about Fukushima accident.
