Hypocenter locations of shallow earthquakes in Horonobe area were determined to reveal the mechanisms of earthquake occurrence. The absolute source locations of 211 earthquakes were determined; then, those earthquakes with similar waveforms were identified, and the source locations of 26 multiplet groups were relocated by using cross-spectrum and clustering analyses. The relocated hypocenters allowed two seismically active areas to be identified, at 10-20 km and around 25-30 km depth. The earthquake locations indicate structures trending nearly N-S, and the structures causing repeated stick-slips at asperities, thus generating similar earthquakes.
