The Japnese government has issued J-Alert warning system across the cities such as Aomori, Akita, Hokkaido, Niigata, Tochigi, Fukushima, Yamagata, Nagano and Ibaraki.
The missile passed over Japanese territory and is thought to have fallen into waters 1,180km east of Cape Erimo on the island of Hokkaido.
According to the Daily Express, Japan’s Prime Minister Shinzo Abe said: “We will make utmost efforts to firmly protect the lives of the people.”
