According to the Japan Meteorological Agency, the earthquake occurred at 2:42 p.m. (local time) at a depth of 10 kilometers and with an epicenter in the Noto area in northern Ishikawa.

The tremor led to the suspension of train service in that area of ​​Japan, including the Hokuriku shinkansen (bullet train), which crosses the country and connects with the capital Tokyo.

After the telluric movement in the Ishikawa area, other earthquakes of magnitude 4 were reported in the city of Nagaoka, in the Niigata prefecture (west coast), and magnitude 3 in Tohoku (north).

Japan is located on the so-called Ring of Fire, one of the most active seismic zones in the world, so its infrastructures are designed to withstand tremors.
