Abstract
The first Japanese word "chishitsu-gaku" for the "geology" was proposed by Genpo Mitsukuri, a scientific contributor in the Tokugawa regime in the 19th century, who was born in 1799 in Tsuyama in Western Honshu, Japan and had worked for scientific activities of the Tokugawa government from 1839 to 1863. His major works for the first making of the "chishitsu-gaku" for the "geology" have been presented in this paper, also showing his contribution to Japanese sciences.
