According to Time, who profiled Japans earthquake warning system earlier this year, the system gives warnings from seconds to one or two minutes before the earthquake hits.

Time: “Japan has the most advanced earthquake early-warning system in the world. A nationwide online system launched in 2007, it detects tremors, calculates an earthquakes epicenter and sends out brief warnings from its 1,000-plus seismographs scattered throughout the country, one of the most earthquake-prone nations on the planet.”
