Areas hit hard by the magnitude 7.6 Noto Peninsula earthquake have begun to make some progress on reconstruction three months after the Jan. 1 disaster.

The famous morning market of the hard-hit Ishikawa Prefecture city of Wajima took place again as a pop-up event in the prefecture's capital of Kanazawa. The prefectural government, for its part, has released an outline of an upcoming reconstruction plan.

The temblor registered a seismic intensity of up to 7 on the Japanese earthquake intensity scale.
