Neodani Fault (根尾谷断層 Neodani Dansō?) is a left lateral slip fault in Central Japan, Gifu Prefecture, which ruptured causing the 1891 Mino-Owari earthquake (Otherwise known as the Nobi Earthquake) in 1891. It caused a 6m vertical offset and 8m left lateral offset, and ruptured over 80 km.[1] The quake was the largest ever recorded in inland Japan.
