Keywords:Methane hydrate, Interstitial water

In order to assess geochemical condition, we measured dissolved ion of seawater and interstitial water in methane hydrate fields off San’in region of western Honshu, Japan. Sediment samples were obtained in Tsushima Basin, Yamato Basin and Oki Trough using in July 2016. The methane flux in study area is comparatively high. Although methane hydrate has not been recovered in study sites, methane hydrate is probably embedded in deeper horizons, as indicated by chloride concentrations.
