外文标题：Japan earthquake collapses homes, causes injuries to more than 20
TOKYO: A strong earthquake late Saturday struck a mountainous area of central Japan that hosted the 1998 winter Olympics, knocking down at least 10 homes in a ski resort town and injuring more than 20 people, officials said.
The magnitude-6.8 earthquake struck near Nagano city shortly after 10pm (1300 GMT) at a depth of 10 kilometers (6 miles), the Japan Meteorological Agency said. The US Geological Survey measured the quake's magnitude at 6.2. Since the quake occurred inland, there was no possibility of a tsunami.
At least 22 people were injured, three of them seriously, in Nagano city, the Hakuba ski resort and elsewhere, the National Polilce Agency told Japan's Kyodo news agency.

China has so much land - Japan should be given some land in China so that they can leave their shaking land. Japanese are highly talented people, they should be saved.
