Abstract

At the north-east part of Shimokita peninsula, the writer found fossil periglacial phenomena originated in the last glacial age. At Cape Shiriya, some coastal dunes develop on the lower marine terrace at the height of 15-20m. Some fossil gelivation phenomena observed at the section of the coastal dune along a road cutting.
The dark grey sand layer of the coastal dune was abundant in angular and subangular tabular and wedge-shaped stones originated from bed rock. The tabular and wedge-shaped stones are deposited parallel to the surface.
