 Seven Roads: Seven Roads of Japan
After the Reformation of the Taika Era (645) and the establishment of an elaborate central government system with administrative and judicial institutions modeled after the Tang Dynasty in China, a road network covering all of Honshu, Shikoku, and Kyushu was established.
This public road network system on a nationwide scale is the system of Seven Roads, and it included the famous Tokaido, Tosando, Hokurikudo, San-indo, San-yodo, Nankaido, and Saikaido.
They were built by adapting to and overcoming the restrictions of Japan's complex topography, and became the prototype of highways and roads in later periods.

Abstract We have reexamined reports indicating that slow deformation occurred before the great Japan earthquakes of 1944 (Tonankai) and 1946 (Nankaido) and find that the observations are well founded.
Although no quantitative models have previously been proposed to explain all of the relevant data we show that they are satisfied by a simple model for both earthquakes.
For the Nankai trough subduction zone, reports [11-17] indicate that, before both the 1944 Tonankai earthquake and the 1946 Nankaido earthquake, slow deformation occurred.

The classic Castle is located in the center of Kochi and has been designated an Important Cultural Asset by the national government.
The castle was built by Yamanouchi Kazutoyo who was awarded the 240,000 koku (unit of rice) domain, and has since been the most well-known of castles on the Nankaido for some 400 years.
The stairway leading up to the castle is purposely hard to climb with the stone steps of differing widths and heights in order to thwart off enemies.

 The Shikoku Pilgrimage Road
For many years, Wakayama and Shikoku have shared close relations through their sea routes, the Nankaido.
Many years ago, the pilgrim, embarking on the pilgrimage to visit the 88 Shikoku temples, eventually found himself in Wakayama’s Koyasan.
The bridge and the rebirth of the pilgrimage roads, the Henro-michi of Shikoku and Koyasan, will enable the region to flourish in the 21st century.

The 1995 Kobe, Japan, earthquake; a long-delayed aftershock of the offshore 1944 Tonankai and 1946 Nankaido earthquakes -- Pollitz and Sacks 87 (1): 1 -- Bulletin of the Seismological Society of America
The 1995 Kobe, Japan, earthquake; a long-delayed aftershock of the offshore 1944 Tonankai and 1946 Nankaido earthquakes
The last major earthquakes along the Nankai trough, the M8.0 1944 Tonankai and M8.2 1946 Nankaido earthquakes, involved about 4 m of interplate slip, each releasing about 100 years of accumulated stress from the northwest-southeast convergence of the Philippine Sea (PHS) plate.

With an inversion technique based on Akaike's Bayesian Information Criterion (ABIC) we analyzed levelling data for 1893-1983 on Shikoku, southwestern Japan, where large interplate earthquakes have periodically occurred at intervals of about 120 years, releasing tectonic stress produced by steady relative motion of the Philippine Sea and the Eurasian plates.
Through the inversion analysis we reconstructed the pattern of crustal movements on Shikoku over the last 120 years, including the occurrence of the 1946 Nankaido earthquake (M 8.1).
The result clearly shows that the crustal movements on Shikoku include significant secular vertical motion (uplift in the south and subsidence in the north) in addition to cyclic motion related to the periodic occurrence of interplate earthquakes at the Nankai trough.

The Nankaido (南海道), literally meaning southern road was both an ancient region of Japan and a ancient road which comnected provincial capital in this region.
The road extend from Nara to the seacoast to the south on the Kii Peninsula of the island of Honshu in Japan and crossing the sea, extended to Yura (nowadays Sumoto) and then Shikoku.

 Stress triggering, Fred Pollitz   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-21)
Triggered earthquakes can occur many years after a primary earthquake and at variable distance from it.
The secondary earthquake can occur in a region which had only very small static stress change, as is suspected to be the case for the 1944 Tonankai/1946 Nankaido (primary) to 1995 Kobe (secondary) earthquakes, and the 1957 Aleutian/1964 Prince William Sound earthquakes (primary) to 1970-1994 western North America earthquake progression (secondary).
Most earthquake pairs which exhibit a substantial time delay, however, involve earthquakes in fairly close priximity to one another, such as the August 1999 Izmit, Turkey (primary) to November 1999 Duzce, Turkey (secondary) earthquakes.

It appears that this earthquake may have been triggered by an episode of dike growth.
Our work on slow earthquakes, based on recordings from the strainmeters, led us to reexamine reports of slow changes before the great Tonankai (1944) and Nankaido (1946) earthquakes along the Nankai trough south of Honshu, Japan.
The evidence for those slow changes came from leveling surveys, tide gauge records, and reports of the drying up of water wells.

The Nankaido tsunami, on 21 December 1946, resulted in 1,500 deaths and the destruction of 1,151 houses.(2)

 Faults and Faulting
We have few observations of complete earthquake cycles because earthquakes take so long to recur.
The Figure above shows the observations from the Nankaido region of Japan (the gray region, the older values are estimated from earthquake histories), one of the few regions where observations on strain throughout several earthquake cycles exist.
You can see that neither the time nor the slip is uniform from earthquake-to-earthquake.

 Geotimes - January 2001: Geophenomena
The best way to understand how the viscoelastic effect might play into earthquake hazard is to monitor crustal motion continuously over the years following a quake, Thatcher says.
He first began noticing possible mantle movement when he studied aftereffects of the 1946 Nankaido earthquake off the coast of southwest Japan.
Japanese scientists made geodetic surveys 50 years before and 40 years after the quake, showing changes in vertical crust motion.

Starting from a point close to Takamatsu Castle, the Iyo Road runs westward overlapping the west route of the Marugame Road, one of the Five Main Roads of Sanuki, until it reaches Kokubunji Town.
Then it leads westward to the borders with Ehime Prefecture following almost the same route of 'Nankaido', a Medieval national highway.
Since the road also led to Tosa (now Kochi Prefecture) from Kawanoe, it was often used by the Tosa lords when they mandatorily reported to the Shogun in Edo (now Tokyo) at regular intervals during the Edo Period.
