NHK, TBS, and Fuji TV led with reports that an earthquake with a magnitude of 4.9 hit Yamanashi at 6:37 this morning. There have been no reports of injuries or damage and no tsunami warning has been issued. Other broadcasters led with reports on the Transport Ministry’s withdrawal of its request for airlines to stop accepting reservations for Japan-bound flights (NTV) and the cancellation of the figure skating Grand Prix Final in Osaka on account of the Omicron variant of COVID-19 (TV Asahi).


All national dailies except Nikkei gave top play to reports on the retraction of the request for airlines to halt bookings for Japan-bound flights. Nikkei led with the results of a survey showing that Japan’s roster of startups worth more than 100 billion yen ($884.4 million) doubled to six in 2021.
