Landslide dam at Terano, Yamakoshi Village.
The mass was carried away from left slope to right valley, and the river was dammed up.(Aerial photo)

There was the trace of muddy water at the cedar tree, whose location is "a" in the above image. It is surmised that the carried mass was fluidized at the end of the landslide.
