This paper summarizes the occurrence of knockers (exotic blocks standing above the local terrain in a fault zone) of the Mineoka ophiolite belt, Boso Peninsula, Japan, from published data, figures, references as well as some new data. Four areas in particular are described, the Kamogawa, the Mineoka-Sengen, the Hosono-Mt. Atago, and the Heguri-Yamada areas. Tables of knocker occurrences and chemistry data are provided as appendices. Interpretation and discussion of the analytical implications of the data presented, and age data, are projects for the future.
