Keywords:The Geo1ogical Society of Japan, fossil locality, 1884

The List of Fossil Localities in Japan(1884) was discovered in the Library of Geological Institute, the University of Tokyo. It includes 360 fossil localities. Some of the names of geologic ages, fossils and stones are different from modern usages. Some are written in Chinese, and some names of fossil are old term used in Edo Era. It shows the efforts of Japanese paleontologists of that days.
