A one-metre tsunami has struck the city of Ishinomaki in Japan after a 7.3 earthquake off the coast.

The quake struck 23 miles down in the Pacific Ocean approximately 285 miles from the Japanese capital of Tokyo.

Buildings across the region of Miyagi Prefecture, devastated by the March 11 quake in 2011, were shaken by the initial earthquake.

Whilst today's quake appears to have been far weaker than the March 11 tremor, many areas are still recovering and today's tsunami could hamper rebuilding efforts.

The March 11 quake lead to the Fukushima nuclear disaster.
