Abstract The geodetic activities of VERA in the year 2011 are briefly described. The regular geodetic observations are carried out both in K- and S/X-bands. The frequency of regular observations are three times a month--twice for the VERA internal observations in K-band. The networks of the S/X sessions are JADE of GSI and IVS-T2. The raw data of the T2 and JADE sessions are electronically transferred to the Bonn, Haystack, and GSI correlators via Internet. Gravimetric observations are carried out at the VERA stations. The superconducting gravimeter previously installed at Esashi Earth Tides Station was moved to Mizusawa and placed in the vicinity of the VERA antenna in order to monitor vertical displacement at the end of 2008, and the observation continued throughout the year. The 2011 earthquake off the Pacific coast of Tohoku generated step-like and creeping-like movements to the VERAMZSW position.
