I happened to be in Tokyo during the great earthquake of 2011. I took this video in the basement of Seibu department store supermarket in Shibuya just when the initial jolts of the 8.9 magnitude earthquake struck downtown Tokyo this afternoon, 11 March 2011. The quake triggered tsunami's around the country and created chaos around the area. Strong aftershocks after this were felt and we all evacuated to the street. The staff were well prepared, calm, orderly and organized - it's obvious they've experienced this before. This was literally their reaction within seconds of the quake.
