In the 2016 Kumamoto earthquake, the Futagawa fault zone and the Hinagu fault zone were active in some sections, causing severe damage in neighboring areas along the faults. We conducted a detailed investigation of the surface earthquake fault, building damage, and site amplification of shallow ground within about 1 km of the neighboring areas of the fault. The focus was mainly on Kawayou district, Minamiaso village and Miyazono district, Mashiki town, and locations that suffered particularly severe building damage. We explored the relationship between local strong motion and building damage caused in areas that were in the immediate vicinity of the active fault.
