Operations were resumed in all sections of the Noto Tetsudo railway on Saturday after the train line was damaged in a massive earthquake that rocked the Noto Peninsula in central Japan on New Year's Day.

The area where operations were resumed for the first time in three months was the 16.8-kilometer section connecting Noto-Nakajima Station in the city of Nanao in Ishikawa Prefecture and Anamizu Station in the town of Anamizu, also in Ishikawa.

Railway operations will be limited to around 80% for the time being.
