Toyota Motor Corp. announced on Monday that part of its domestic production will restart on Tuesday, following suspension of works after a shortage of engine parts due to last week's earthquake in western Japan.

The firm will restart part of its production using engine parts in stock, according to Toyota's spokeswoman. The nation's biggest automaker suspended output at all 12 domestic factories on Thursday.

Meanwhile, auto parts maker Riken Corp. also restarted some of its production on Sunday and started its shipments from Monday.

The firm halted its production for a week after its manufacturing plant in Kashiwazaki was damaged by the earthquake in the Niigata prefecture.

The temporary closure affected many Japanese automakers' production, including Toyota and Nissan. Automaker production will not reach pre-quake levels until next week.

Toyota's production halt since Thursday caused an output loss of about 46,000 vehicles so far, according to Japanese business daily Nikkei.
