text:the Japan sea/
The greater snow-fall of west Japan is appearently due to the cold dry north and north-west winds which prevail during the winter months, picking up moisuture from the Japan sea and depositing it upon the first high Isnd, which will be the mountains of West and North Japan, with which it comes in contact.

The Strait of La Perouse may have been formed in a manner similar to those of Tsugaru, and just as Yezo was cut off from the mainland, if marine denudation continues and Volcano Bay become much deeper, Northern Yezo may be cut off from Southern Yezo, and one more channel will be opened to connect the Japan sea with the Pacific Ocean.
