Inuki Discordance

Basic points

You can observe a discordance where the stratum from the ocean from around 100 million years ago during the age of dinosaurs, and the stratum created in the sea bed when Paleo Chichibu Bay came into existence during the age of mammals, come into contact after a period of roughly 100 million years. The discordance is designated as a national natural monument.
