After publication of this article (Nitta et al. 2020), it is noticed some errors were introduced during typesetting with Figs. 3, 5 & 6.

The correct Figs. 3, 5 and 6 are provided below.

Fig. 3
figure 3

Typical Zijderveld plots for PThD experiments. Solid and open circles, respectively, denote the horizontal and vertical projection. a One magnetic component with smooth decay to the origin. b Two magnetic components with a small low-temperature component. c Two magnetic components with a steady low-temperature component. d Multi-magnetic components

Fig. 5
figure 5

Typical Arai plots of accepted (ad) and rejected (e, f) specimens obtained from IZZI-Thellier experiments. Circles represent the normalized NRM vs. pTRM data with best-ft lines marked in gray. pTRM checks are shown as triangles. Zijderveld plots of the experiments are also shown as inset figures. Paleointensity analysis was conducted using ThellierTool (Leonhardt et al. 2004)

Fig. 6
figure 6

PSV record during the past 4.0–2.0 ka (a) and 7.0–2.0 ka (d) for Y8 lava and 1.6–0.6 ka for Y9 lava (b, c) and our paleomagnetic results. Paleodirection obtained from Lake Biwa sediments (Ali et al. 1999) and that from the Japan Archeomagnetism Database (Hatakeyama and Shibuya 2012) were adopted, respectively, as PSV to paleodirection age estimation for Y8 (a) and Y9 (b) lava. Paleointensity data obtained from eastern Asia (Cai et al. 2017) were adopted as PSV for paleointensity age estimation (c, d). Mean paleodirections of Y8 (a) and Y9 (b) lava and their 95% confdence angles are shown, respectively, as open squares and gray circles. Estimated VADM values of Y9 (c) and Y8 (d) lava and their standard deviations are shown, respectively, as bold lines and gray bars

The publisher apologizes to the readers and authors for the inconvenience.
