Narrative

A mainly featureless ice plateau, situated eastward of the Queen Fabiola Mountains and southward of the Shirase Glacier in Queen Maud Land. A field party of the JARE studied the Mizuho Plateau in November-December 1960 and gave its name. At the Japanese station on East Ongul Island it was called "Japan Highland," but this name was not adopted officially. Mizuho is one of the ancient names of Japan.
