    Rattling windows you said? You need some rubber wedges & as for the bed, I have no suggestion whatsoever , mine hasn't rocked for a few years.

    Yes, counterintuitively if a big quake hits and you're in the subways you're probably better off staying down there, because:

    1. the subway exits all narrow down and are serious crush points when 10,000 people try to exit at once;

    2. there'd be glass, AC units and all sorts of other stuff crashing to the ground at street level;

    3. the deeper you are the less severe the earth movement.

    Sounds like the Daibutsu (Big Buddha) at Kamakura that used to have a huge temple around it but which got washed away by a tsunami. And, yeah, it's a long way from the beach.
