A M5.3 shallow earthquake occurred on 16 June 2016 in Minamikayabe region, southern Hokkaido. Three temporal seismic stations had been operated in the focal region from 18 June 2016 to 29 August 2016. Initial hypocenters and 1-D P-wave velocity structure were estimated from waveform data of temporal and permanent seismic stations. Fine aftershock distribution inferred from the double-difference procedure showed that the hypocenters were distributed in NW-SE direction, which might be agree with a fault plane of mainshock focal mechanism. Five foreshocks occurred near mainshock hypocenter showed similar waveform with high correlation. Characteristic persistent background seismicity and latest middle size earthquake might be related to high geothermal gradient in this region.
