The Futagawa-Hinagu fault zone (布田川・日奈久断層帯, Futagawa Hinagu Dansōtai) is a series of faults in Kumamoto Prefecture of Japan, which was responsible for the 2016 Kumamoto earthquakes. It consists of two fault zones along the west coast of Kumamoto, stretching over 100 km, making it the longest fault zone in Kyushu.[1] Parts of the fault were selected as natural monuments following the 2016 Kumamoto earthquakes.[2]
