Six decapod crustacean species, including one gebiidean and five anomurans, are reported as new to the marine fauna in the Sea of Japan based on material collected from the coast of Tottori Prefecture, western Japan. Among them, the munidid squat lobster Paramunida tricarinata (Alcock, 1894) is new to the Japanese fauna. In addition to the six species, the occurrence of the diogenid hermit crab Paguristes versus Komai, 2001 in the Sea of Japan is confirmed on the basis of specimens newly obtained from Tottori Prefecture. The current knowledge on the fauna of Gebiidea and Anomura in the western Japanese coast of the Sea of Japan is also briefly summarized.
