Fig. A2. a) Panorama photograph of the outcrop of the Hakobuchi Formation. The rectangle (b) denotes the area of Fig. A1b. Abbreviations cg.: conglomerate, Hb: Haborogawa Formation, Hk: Hakobuchi Formation, ss.: sandstone. b) Enlarged photograph of the outcrop near the dating sample. White scale bar is 1 m.

Fig. A4. a) Wetherill Concordia diagram of IS2. Red solid circles indicate concordant datasets. Blue open circles indicate discordant dates. b) Examples of cathodoluminescence (CL) images of zircon grains from sample IS2. White circles show measurement spots (25 μm). The 206U/238Pb date of each spot is indicated. Scale bar is 100 μm. Yellow numbers indicate the Th/U ratio of zircon grains.
