Sequence stratigraphy is a very powerful tool for analysis of facies successions. The facies successions are formed by the interaction of tectonic, eustatic, sedimentary and climatic processes. In this paper, we present the examples of the interaction using by our studies in Japanese Islands. Namely, we firstly introduce the depositional sequence model of “EXXON Group”, secondary discuss the factors of eustacy, sediment supply and subsidence, then give the new topics of effect on stratigraphy, and finally describe the development in future and problems of sequence stratigraphy.
