The Kumamoto earthquake is a series of seismic activity in Kumamoto Prefecture and prefectures around it including the former shock (M6.5, seismic intensity 7) which occurred at 21:26 on April 14, 2016, and the main shock (M7.3, seismic intensity 7) which occurred at 1:25 on April 16, and after shocks. In this paper, we detect disasters of Kumamoto earthquake by using remote sensing technique. The used data are aerial photographs (resolution: 35cm), ALOS-2/PALSAR-2 (resolution: 3m) and LANDSAT-8/OLI (resolution: 30m) data. We focus the disaster detection in Minami-Aso-Mura in Kumamoto Prefecture where was a most damaged area by the earthquake.
