Dinosaur and bird footprints from the Late Jurassic to Early Cretaceous Kowashimizu Formation of the Tetori Group have been newly discovered in the Asuwa River area of eastern Fukui City, Fukui Prefecture in the central part of Japan. The dinosaur footprints are those of a theropod and an ornithopod, and one footprint is considered to possibly be that of a sauropod. These footprints, discovered in the westernmost margin of the Tetori Group, indicate non-marine sedimentary conditions and further indicate that various dinosaurs thrived widely.
