A one-metre-high tsunami has hit Japan's northeast coast following a strong earthquake, according to the country's meteorological agency.
The wave was recorded on Friday in Ishinomaki, a city in Miyagi prefecture that was badly hit by the tsunami of March 2011, which killed thousands.
Although emergency announcements repeatedly urged all near the coast to flee to higher ground, the Japan Meteorological Agency lifted a tsunami warning soon after.
The Japan Meteorological Agency said the earthquake, with a preliminary magnitude of 7.3, struck in the Pacific Ocean off the Miyagi coast at 08:18GMT.
The epicentre was 10km beneath the seabed.
