The area geology consists of Neocene rocks such as andesite, rhyolite, and andesitic and rhyolitic tuffs, sandstones, and mudstones, and Quaternary andesitic rocks belonging to the volcanoes of Shiretoko.
The lithologic substratum is represented by Neocene marine sediments, formed mainly from argil and sand (marl with elements of grit stone, limestone, pudding stone and volcanic tuba), as well as local reshuffling of a sedimentary nature on the slopes and of an alluvial nature in the valleys, all of them having a tendency towards pedo-diagenetic loessification.
