•Detrital zircon U-Pb ages of Paleozoic sandstones recorded Paleozoic arc magmatism.•Age spectra of zircons in Paleozoic sandstones are common in Primorye and Japan.•Neoproterozoic detrital zircons suggest an intimate link to the South China block.•Greater South China included the Khanka/Jiamusi/Bureya blocks in Far East Asia.
