    Landscapes of Japan, 19, Coastal features, deeply embayed Pacific coast, Yamada.

    Coastal features, deeply embayed Pacific coast, Yamada. -- The coastline at Yamada is irregular with large bays separated by mountainous promontories that jut into the sea. (Compare this coastline with the straight one shown in slide 1.18.) This kind of coastline can be produced where rocks and geological structures trend across the coastline so that shoreline erosion of weaker rocks produces bays while more resistant rocks are left as headlands and promontories. It can also result from submergence of a mountainous land surface where the flooded valleys form bays and the mountains stand above the sea.

    Landscapes of Japan, 02, Weathered granodiorite, Shirasakatage.

    Weathered granodiorite, Shirasakatage. -- In mountainous terrain weathered rock material, a major component of soil, is rapidly carried away downslope. The result is soil that is thin, poor and rocky. The eroded material may be deposited along a river farther downstream producing a floodplain, or it may be carried all the way to the sea. Because most Japanese rivers and streams are short and fast moving, much of the material goes to the sea. Agriculture is difficult in the mountainous parts of Japan because of steep slopes and poor soils, and much of this land remains covered by forest.
