A quarterly magazine that had informed readers about the unknown attractions of the Noto Peninsula in Ishikawa Prefecture for over 13 years is set for revival this month, after being halted following a powerful earthquake that struck four months ago.

Yukio Tsunezuka, the 70-year-old chief editor of the "Noto" magazine, who undertakes almost all of the editorial work alone, had no choice but to suspend its publication after the 7.6 magnitude quake ravaged municipalities on the peninsula on Jan. 1.

But Tsunezuka was encouraged by people around him to restart publishing and is now working on a new edition that will include the lessons from the temblor, which measured up to 7, the highest level on Japan's seismic intensity scale.
