The 2011 earthquake off the Pacific coast of Tohoku, often referred to in
Japan as Higashi nihon daishin-sai
and also known as the 2011 Tohoku earthquake, was a magnitude 9.03 (Mw) undersea megathrust
earthquake off the coast of Japan that occurred at 14:46 JST (05:46 UTC) on Friday, 11 March 2011,
with the epicenter approximately 70 kilometres (43 mi) east of the Oshika Peninsula of Tohoku and
the hypocenter at an underwater depth of approximately 32 km (20 mi).
It was the most powerful known earthquake ever to have hit Japan, and one
of the five most powerful earthquakes in the world since modern record-keeping began in 1900.
The earthquake triggered powerful tsunami waves that reached heights of up to 40.5 metres (133 ft)
in Miyako in Tohoku's Iwate Prefecture, and which, in the Sendai area,
travelled up to 10 km (6 mi) inland.
The earthquake moved Honshu (the main island of Japan) 2.4 m (8 ft) east
and shifted the Earth on its axis by estimates of between 10 cm (4 in) and 25 cm (10 in).
