A 6.1-magnitude earthquake hit off Japan's Bonin Islands but there was no tsunami risk, seismologists said.

The quake hit at a depth of 450 kilometres at 02:27am (17.27 GMT) 770 kilometres south of Shimoda, according to the United States Geological Survey.

Japan Meteorological Agency said the quake poses no tsunami risk.

A 9.0-magnitude earthquake in March 2011 triggered a massive and deadly tsunami, which smashed into a power station and sparked the world's worst atomic accident since Chernobyl in 1986.
