The frequency-magnitude distribution (b-value) for seismicity within the Pacific plate is not definitely homogeneous. An anomaly of b-value higher than 0.9 is detected within the descending Pacific plate in the Hokkaido corner. In the western Hokkaido, the anomaly exists at a depth of about 150 km, which is directly beneath active volcanoes. In the eastern Hokkaido, the anomalies exist at approximately 200 and 300 km depths, which is tens of kilometers sideways from active volcanoes.
