Construction of emergency temporary housing is currently in progress in Anamizu, Ishikawa Prefecture, to assist residents affected by the Noto Peninsula earthquake on January 1. However, the number of units that have been completed falls far short of the total needed by displaced residents, causing a scramble for the available housing. The process of securing stable housing for those impacted by the earthquake has become a significant challenge, hindering the region's efforts to rebuild and restore normalcy in residents’ lives.

In late March, The Asahi Shimbun conducted interviews with eight cities and towns in Ishikawa Prefecture where emergency temporary housing was being constructed. The municipalities were questioned about the applications received for these units, which totaled 8,293 across the region. Each town had varying methods for calculating the applications, with Wajima showing the highest number at 4,140, followed by Suzu with 1,962, and other towns such as Noto, Nanao, Anamizu, Shika, Uchinada, and Hakui also receiving applications for temporary housing. The Ishikawa prefectural government aimed to finish 1,600 units by the end of March, with a total of 988 already completed, and ongoing construction on 5,086 units out of the proposed 8,200 temporary housing units offered by the government.

The earthquake on New Year's Day resulted in the destruction of 8,400 houses and left over 75,000 homes damaged, leading to around 8,100 individuals living as evacuees by the end of March. One resident, Noriaki Kagawa, shared his challenges of finding stable housing after his residence in Anamizu was destroyed in the earthquake. Kagawa, along with his wife who has health issues, had been moving between shelters, government buildings, and even relatives’ homes looking for a place to settle down. Their journey included temporary stays in parking lots and hotels until they were finally informed of a temporary housing unit available for them near their former home.
