Defense Minister Itsunori Onodera decided on Sept. 6 to end his European tour early and return to Japan on the morning of Sept. 7 to respond to the earthquake that occurred in Hokkaido. The earthquake measured 7 on the Japanese seismic scale. The original plan was for Onodera to visit the Netherlands and Italy from Sept. 4 and meet with his counterparts in each country and return to Japan on the afternoon of Sept. 7.
