TOKYO - An earthquake with a magnitude of 6.1 struck off the coast of eastern Japan early on Friday morning local time, the U.S. Geological Survey said. There were no immediate reports of any casualties or damage.

Japan is recovering from a magnitude 9.0 quake which struck on March 11 and triggered a huge tsunami. The disaster killed about 26,000 people.

There have been numerous aftershocks since then.
