A landlocked country in South Asia, Nepal has a population of about 27 million, making it the 41st most populous country in the world. With an area of 147,181 square kilometres, it is the 93rd largest country by land mass

On March 14, 2014, a 6.3 magnitude earthquake hit Japan, which recorded an 82.9km deep epicenter striking off the intersection between the islands of Kyushu, Honshu, and Shikoku. The epicenter was 13km north of Kunisaki-shi City in Oita Prefecture, Kyushu Island.

No significant damages, casualties, or tsunami warnings were reported after the 6.3 magnitude earthquake hit three of the four main islands of Japan although 6.0 to 6.9 magnitude earthquakes can be felt by the areas that are hundreds of kilometres away from the epicenter.

Moreover, no abnormalities were seen in the Shimane Nuclear Power Plant, which is hundreds of kilometres away from the epicenter after the earthquake.
