Moment-radius-stress drop relations and composite focal mechanisms were determined for 33 small, shallow, strike slip earthquakes (1.7$MLS4.3) in the Matsushiro region of southwest Honshu, Japan during the period August 1971 through September 1974. Estimates of the scalar moment derived from deconvolved SH displacement amplitude spectra range from 1018 to 1022 dyne-cm. The apparent stress ranges from 0.001 to 3.00 bars and the relationship between apparent stress and moment is approximately linear with a slope of 1.
