I thought about bringing the Mercalli scale up when I went looking for a handy chart of the JMA scale levels. But then, there’s apparently also something called the Modified Mercalli scale; there are regular and open-ended Richter scales, too. I’m not a seismologist, and my brain was starting to short-circuit.
I’m glad you reminded me to go back and look at it, though, because the Japanese scale takes into account the special conditions in Japan (such as the traditional use of big old conkers of clay tiles on roofs, and the bad luck when tombstones and burial urns are overturned). I was going to see whether the Mercalli scale was different in any interesting ways.

In Italy (I am Italian), another rather seismic region, we often use a similar system, the Mercalli scale, that is based on the quake’s effects on buildings and people. It goes up to 10 grades, I think.
