U-Pb and fission-track (FT) ages from single zircon grain were measured for three tephra samples (TKB3, TKB6, and TKB7) intercalated in Neogene to Quaternary in Horonobe area, Hokkaido, to understand their depositional ages. In TKB3 and TKB6, weighed average U-Pb and FT ages for zircon grains within the youngest age range are coincident within a range of error 2 $$sigma$$ each other, which suggest that their ages correspond to the eruption ages. In TKB7, FT ages for most zircons are reset to their U-Pb ages or younger. The weighed average FT age for all analyzed zircons and weighed average U-Pb age for zircon grains within the youngest age range are coincident within a range of error 2 $$sigma$$ each other. Thus, their ages could also show the eruption age.
