Regional area

Miyagi Prefecture divides the prefecture area as follows. There are seven areas: "Wide area Kesennuma/Motoyoshi area", "Wide area Ishinomaki area", "Wide area Tome area", "Wide area Kurihara area", "Wide area Osaki area", "Wide area Sendai urban area", and "Wide area Sennan area".[18].. Miyagi Prefecture Promotion Office in each area[Annotation 1].. In addition, there are wide-area administrative organizations by municipalities in each regional area, but in the Kurihara area and the Tome area, which were consolidated into one city each by the Great Heisei merger, each regional administrative organization was dissolved and the Kurihara City Hall and Tome City hall inherits that function.

At the end of the Edo period, the Sendai clan was in charge of the protection of Hokkaido at the order of the Shogunate. At this timeAizu Domain,Shonai DomainThe Tohoku Domains, such as Tohoku Domain, were also in charge of guarding Hokkaido. The guard area and territory of the Sendai domain occupied about one-third of Hokkaido.

Chronological Table


2022(ReiwaAccording to the census (4 years), the population of Miyagi prefecture is about 228 million.

1920(Taisho9 years)Fukushima,YamagataNext toTohoku regionAlthough it was the third largest population,1925(Taisho 14) surpassed Yamagata Prefecture to become second place,1980It has been the most populated prefecture in Tohoku since 55. However, the population that has continued to grow consistently since the census began2003(15) it started to decrease for the first time. stillSendai metropolitan areaAlthough the population is growing, the number of counties is decreasing sharply.Prefectural office locationThe population of Sendai city is about 48percentOccupyPrimate City). This population concentration rateKyotoIt is the second highest in Japan after the second.

Compared to the national average,UniversitySince graduationUniversity-Graduate SchoolsThere is a tendency for the population ratio of the age group to be high. This is in SendaiTohoku UniversityThis is because there are many universities and vocational schools, such as the University of Tokyo, and there are many students from all over the country, not just the Tohoku region. Also, as a change over the years, there is a characteristic pattern in which the population of this age group decreases in March of the graduation season and recovers in April of the entrance school.

Previously,Sendai metropolitan areaSince there was a disparity in income between other regions, Sendai City attracted job seekers and realized a social increase, with a population increase of about 1 each year. At the same time in SendaiBed townThere was also an increase in the population of neighboring local governments. But,1998From around 10, the decrease in social growth in Sendai City has become remarkable. There is a social increase in neighboring local governments. This is because the income gap between Tokyo and Sendai has widened in response to the recession in Sendai, and there is a tendency for Tokyo to seek employment rather than Sendai. However, because Sendai is still popular as a high school graduate's employment place, job seekers from other prefectures in the Tohoku region concentrate in Sendai and the competition rate rises. The lowest level continues.

However, it is small in the prefecture市町村In addition to the Sendai city, the local shopping center that has been selling mainlyLarge-scale retail store,Roadside shop,Super centerIn addition, services such as price competition and parking have been defeated and have declined.

Although there are large and small scales, the following commercial centers have the ability to attract customers from the surrounding area. Regarding the commercial situation in each area in Miyagi Prefecture, the Sendai metropolitan area is dominant in attracting customers, and the commercial bases of other cities are declining.

Sendai city center
On the main highwaysRoadside shopDue to the accumulation of large-scale suburban stores and the subsidence of the central shopping district, the development of high-speed buses attracted customers not only from within Miyagi Prefecture but also from Yamagata Prefecture and Fukushima Prefecture. Then, branding is progressing. About 1% (about 1 people) of the population are foreign residents, but there are many teachers and students at universities and vocational schools, etc. The feeling is weak.

Sendai Department
Sendai cityIzumi kuThrough the east and westSeven Kitada RiverOn the north coast ofIzumichuo StationOn the south coastYaotome StationThese areas together form a sub-city center to the north of Sendai.However, since there are originally few flat areas along the Shichikitada River, there are few areas designated as urban areas, and there are areas where large-scale stores can enter. Absent. Originally, Izumichuo was dominated by roadside store-type stores that were accessible by car, but due to the small land area, traffic congestion was heavy, and the roadside store-type store format was changed. With this tilt,DaieiAlthough the Sendai Izumi store had a vast parking lot, its performance deteriorated and it was forced to close. On the other hand, in the center of Izumi,Izumichuo StationThere are relatively many people walking on foot because there is, and office buildings are concentrated, although they are low-rise.Vegalta SendaiIs the home stadium ofSendai StadiumThere is a crowd of nearly 2 people before and after the game, and a drinking area is formed, and the concentration of urban functions progresses.Ito-YokadoLarge-scale stores located in front of the station have survived. Due to the suburbanization of Izumichuo, a commercial area called "suburbs of Izumichuo" has been formed. that is,National Route 4For the central Izumi inside the bypass, there are roadside shops along the main road in Tomiya City and Matsuryo Izumi Ward on the outside or outside the bypass.Cinema complexA large-scale suburban store with the addition of the above has also opened. Due to the formation of a small metropolitan area of ​​Izumichuo and its suburbs, the roadside shops along National Route 4 (prefectural road Sendai Izumi Line), which connects the central part of Sendai city and Izumichuo, significantly reduced the ability to attract customers and closed stores or deteriorated business performance. It was hit by a lot of people, and there is a strong tendency to rebuild the apartment. Also, it is adjacent to the north of Tomiya City.Yamato TownMoreover, although there is a slight increase in the number of Japanese-Brazilians, it does not have an impact on commerce.
Northeastern Sendai
Sendai- MatsushimaIn between, Sendai City was set up along National Route 4 bypassGreen beltThere is an area (rice cultivation area conservation area) and wholesale/Ogimachi/Rokucho, which are designated as distribution/industrial areas, and there are vast areas in the north and south, where housing construction and commerce (other than car-related) are hardly possible. There is no such natural barrierOrdinanceDue to the barrier, the northeastern part of the Sendai metropolitan area will beEnclaveIt has become. The roads connecting the city center with the "enclave" and the Matsushima area areNational Route 45-Rifu Kaido-Industrial road,and,highway OfSanriku RoadAnd so on, running in parallel. Among them, the shortest connection between Sendai and MatsushimaRifu KaidoHas the bypass function of the northeastern part of Miyagino-ku, Sendai city, where urban functions have been concentrated for a long time-Tagajo-Shiogama,Sanriku Road-Sendaibu Road-Sendai Eastern RoadFunction as a node for highways,Miyagi StadiumThe status has risen as the entrance to a large-scale customer attraction facility centered on. In addition, the hills of Rifu Town have been developed andBed townThe population increased and the commercial concentration increased. Along the Rifu Highway, it is designated as farmland with limited urbanization, so instead of roadside stores filling the roadside, large-scale stores and roadside stores are concentrated in the center of Rifu Town. .. In recent years, the designation of industrial and distribution areas has begun to be lifted.Sendai PortHinterlandLarge-scale retail stores in the suburbs are opening one after another in the large-scale section (Northeastern Miyagino Ward-Tagajo City: along the industrial road), and along with National Highway No. 45, the three-way competition is becoming excessive in the "flying area". be.
Southern Sendai
To the south of central SendaiNagamachi FukutoshinThere is a sub-center, but it is located in the northKita SendaiLike the district, it is a condominium district. In terms of distance, Kita Sendai and Nagamachi are in the same position as the center of the city, but their development differed due to historical background, differences in the driving of the old National Route 4, and differences in the background population. Also,National Route 286Along the bypassUrbanization control areaTheUrbanization promotion areaIt will be changed to the adjacent Nagamachi- Nagamachi MinamiWas designated as the subcenter. Although there is little concentration of business functions like Izumichuo, which is designated as the sub-center of the city, Nagamachi functions as one of the commercial centers and takes a different path from Kita Sendai. As a recent movement, redevelopment on the east side of Nagamachi StationTomorrow Nagamachi"Is expected to enhance the functionality of Nagamachi as a subcenter of the city,Sendai Airport LineThe development in front of the station is becoming more active. In particular, in front of the stationAEON MALL NatoriHas opened, and unlike the concentric small metropolitan area in the center of Izumi, it is converging into a long and narrow railside/roadside commercial area with rail and vehicle traffic as an infrastructure.
The center of Shiogama, which developed as an outer port of Sendai City, used to be the center of the "enclave", but it is convenient to shop by car.Rifu Town,Tagajo City, It is likely to be found in large-scale suburban retail stores in the hinterland of Sendai Port. However, there are many popular sushi restaurants in the downtown area that are cheap and delicious,MatsushimaNot only tourists, but also from a wide area such as Sendai.
2006(18)3ToFurukawaAnd 6 surrounding towns merged,OsakiWas established. As a central city in the northern part of the prefecture,Furukawa StationThere is a central shopping district in the surrounding area, but since the commercial area is wide,National Route 4There is momentum at roadside stores such as along the bypass. Furukawa areaSendai metropolitan areaIt is one of the few areas in the prefecture where the population is increasing except for the area, and there was a momentum that surpassed the Ishinomaki metropolitan area in terms of commercial function. However, there are many commuting students and shoppers on the Shinkansen and high-speed buses to the Sendai area, and the revitalization of the central shopping district is a particular issue. The Kashimadai commercial area in the southeastern part of the city1997Centered around Rock Town Kashimadai, which opened in (9), chain stores aimed at a rather wide area are marked by two cases in Furukawa and Kashimadai. However2006According to Miyagi Prefecture “Consumer and Purchase Trend Survey Report” (18),Kashimadai TownDid not meet the criteria of the trade area and was left as the center city of the trade area. In the Kashimadai and Matsuyama areas, there are many commuting attendees and shoppers on the Tohoku Line to the Sendai area.
Sanuma (Tome City)
The surrounding area is a region with a low population density, but the concentration rate of restaurants is high, and there is a wide range of purchased items.Therefore, as the central city area of ​​Tome City, it also attracts customers from the city and the south of Iwate Prefecture.However, due to the limited number of roadside stores, the outflow of shoppers (Ishinomaki and Sendai) has become noticeable after the extension of the Sanriku Coastal Road in recent years, and at the same time, the ability to attract customers in the old city area has declined.
Building (Kurihara City)
National Route 4Roadside shops along the way are dominant. There is a tendency to depend on Furukawa.
Kesennuma City
There is an old city in the port area and a new city centered on Kesennuma City Hospital (formerly Kesennuma General Hospital). It forms a unique trading area with cities in southern Sanriku, Iwate Prefecture. Dependent trade areas outside the region areIchinoseki(Southwestern Iwate Prefecture) and Sendai City.
