After the earthquake, all areas in Hokkaido were temporarily blacked out. Some areas have resumed power supply, but there are still about 2.61 million homes with power outages. It takes at least a week to fully restore power.

The earthquake also caused many local highways to close, and the Shinkansen Line 6 was shut down all day. The interior of the new Chitose Airport Terminal, not far from the epicenter, was damaged and leaked in many places. To ensure safety, the airport was closed all day, all flights were cancelled and the travel of 40,000 passengers was affected. Japan’s Ministry of Land, Infrastructure, Transport and Tourism said that it will start supplying electricity to the airport on the afternoon of the 6th and strive to restore domestic routes today.
