Noto Peninsula Earthquake

On March 25, 2007 there was a damaging earthquake (Mw6.7) in the Noto Peninsula area of central Japan. The earthquake was a shallow reverse fault with an offshore hypocenter, but most of the distribution of aftershocks was onshore.There was considerable damage to wooden structures in the Monzen, Anamizu, and Wajima areas. We visited the area of the earthquake on April 6 to 8 and carried out a survey of the damaged buildings in the Monzen region.
