Japan experiences a range of earthquake magnitudes, with some smaller ones barely noticeable and others being quite strong. The country is located on the Pacific Ring of Fire, making it prone to seismic activity. It is important for Japan to have strict building codes and emergency preparedness measures in place due to the frequency and potential strength of earthquakes.
