NHK led with a report on the damage caused by the major earthquake that hit the southern Tohoku region on Wednesday evening, including disruption to water supplies and train service. TV Asahi led with a report on the lives of people under curfew in Kyiv, while NTV and Fuji TV led with reports on the first news conference held by Princess Aiko, the daughter of Emperor Naruhito and Empress Masako, since marking her coming of age in December.


Most national papers gave top coverage to updates on Wednesday’s quake, saying that service on the Tohoku Shinkansen will be disrupted for some time due to the derailment of a bullet train in Miyagi Prefecture.
