Summary The safety of ground structures such as buildings and bridges and underground structures such as tunnels largely depends on the properties of the ground. For this reason, it is important to understand the properties of the ground both directly and indirectly in order for people to live safe and fulfilling lives. In this context, my research aims to understand below-ground views and conditions, which are invisible from the surface, using a geophysical exploration method. I also conduct questionnaire surveys on earthquake intensities with individual residents to obtain detailed information on intensity distributions within a certain area following a large earthquake in order to estimate the degree of earthquake hazard, including where and how ground shaking occurs.
