In 1997, two moderate earthquakes occurred in the northwestern part of Kagoshima Prefecture (Mjma 6.5 on March 26 and Mjma 6.3 on May 13), and a large number of aftershocks occurred in the southern part of the second event focal region. We started the observation of the aftershocks from April 1, 1998, at Kushikino. We used a broadband strong-motion velocity-type seismograph and an accelerograph in order to record the full waveforms of the strong ground motions. Up to April 25, 1999, we observed 74 events, and 3 events were recorded by both seismographs. In this paper, we report the detail of observational conditions and show some waveforms we obtained.
