The Kamimura River, an upper tributary of the Yahagi River, flows through steep valleys in the mountainous Kamiyahagi area of Gifu Prefecture. The Tokai Gou flood of September 11-12, 2000 destroyed embankments along the river, and exposed sedimentary layers at Umi that are typical of a lacustrine depositional setting. This confirms the existence of a paleo-lake from which the name Umi originated. The lake was formed as the result of a huge landslide that dammed up the Kamimura River. To determine when the landslide occurred, radiocarbon (14C) ages of trees buried in lacustrine sediments were determined using accelerator mass spectrometry (AMS). The 14C ages are 300±25, 340±25, 345±25 and 380±25 BP for the outermost rings of tree trunks, which include bark, and a single age of 620±25 BP. Calibrated ages of (1637), (1520, 1590, 1624), (1517, 1597, 1619) and (1482) cal AD within a range of 1455-1643 cal AD are consistent with a landslide triggered by the Tensho Earthquake of January 18, 1586, which had an estimated magnitude of 8.2-8.3 and an epicenter in Ise Bay.

18 January 1586 14:00 UT M7.9-8.1 Tensho #earthquake in Central Honshu, Japan, caused great landslides, killing 8000 people. Epicenter and causative fault still doubtful, due to scarcity of data (civil wars). https://t.co/A0Qbrn925O https://t.co/DU5oCLVZUl https://t.co/LQOmSJcMC7 https://t.co/MqngP5R6wf
18 January 1586 Considered the greatest #earthquake in Central Japan, the M7.9-8.2 Tensho EQ killed about 8000 people and caused landslides. Epicenter and reaponsible fault are still under debate, due to scarcity of data (was a period of civil wars). https://t.co/DU5oCLEovL https://t.co/6uvMKfHJfh
