Prefectures where villages have disappeared

"Cities" and "towns" still exist in all prefectures, but "villages" have begun to appear in prefectures that have completely disappeared.

1962/(Showa 37)Hyogo,1970/(Showa 45)KagawaThe village disappeared because the village that remained until the end enforced the town system.For a long time, these two prefectures had no villages,2004/(16)HiroshimaStarting with the disappearance of the village in Heisei, the village disappeared in 11 prefectures due to the great merger of Heisei.As a result, the number of prefectures without villages was 13 prefectures, which was a quarter of all prefectures.

Requirements to be a town

VillagetownIn order to become, the prefectures to which the village belongs must meet each requirement (population, number of consecutive units or consecutive rates, required public offices, etc., employment population ratio by industry, etc.) (Article 8) 2). The population requirement is most in 5000 prefectures, followed by 8000 prefectures.

There are no special rules regarding village requirements.If it does not meet the conditions for becoming a town, it is automatically a village.

In principle, this is the case of a single town system, and some prefectures have established special cases to promote mergers.

Transition to city/town

In order for a town/village to become a city or a village to become a town, based on the application of the relevant municipalityPrefectural governor Prefectural assemblyImmediately after the decisionMinister of Internal Affairs and CommunicationsReport to Article 8 (3).

Transition is not obligatory. For exampleIbarakiMiuraとTokai villageBoth meet the requirements to be a town (Ibaraki Prefecture has a population requirement of 5000), but they are not towns.

"Transition" due to abandonment

When a town or village is abandoned and at the same time a new city or town is created, the town or village appears to have "migrated" to it. However, in this case, the old towns/villages and the new cities/towns are separate local public bodies even if they have the same name (excluding the “city”, “town”, and “village” parts), and the legality is not continuous.

actuallyAbandonmentAlthough such cases occur due to (merging/transferring, so-called municipal mergers), it is not obligatory to select a new municipality even if it meets the requirements of the city or town.Great Heisei mergerBecame the first new "village" inKumamotoMinamiaso villageHas a population more than double the population requirement (3 people) to become a town due to the merger of the three former villages,Mount AsoNango ValleyWe chose to be a village with an emphasis on the natural environment and the image of rural areas.

"Relegation" to a town/village

"Demotion" due to migration

If a city that does not meet the requirements after becoming a city becomes a town or village, or if a city that does not meet the requirements after becoming a town becomes a village, follow the same procedure as above for moving to a city or town. Take (Article 8 paragraph 3). When a city becomes a town or village, or a town becomes a village, some tasks can be transferred to the prefectural jurisdiction. This can be expected to reduce the burden, but on the other handLocal allocation taxThere is a demerit that the amount of delivery will be reduced, and the amount of office work such as changing the notation of staff business cards and printed materials will occur.

According to the Local Autonomy Law, there is no difference in the “case” or hierarchical relationships between municipalities. Therefore, there is no concept of "demotion" or "promotion", but the consciousness that the city feels higher than the town/village and the town feels higher than the village exists among the residents.[4].. For these reasons, in order to avoid negative impacts on motivation of residents and staff, attachment to the local area, image, etc., it is unlikely that migration to towns and villages will be considered in the first place, 2019 (Reiwa 4) There is no example that has been done so far. For example, at the peak, it had a population of about 6000.HokkaidoUtashinai CityIs below the population requirement (5000 people) to become a town due to the later depopulation, but it is not a village and suffers from serious financial difficulties.2006/Hokkaido where the transition to the town was examined in earnest (18)YubariBut in the end it wasn't selected[5].

"Demotion" due to decommissioning

When a city or town is abandoned and a new town or village is created at the same time, it appears that the city or town has been “relegated” to a town or village. However, in this case, the old city/town and the new town/village are separate local public bodies even if they have the same name (excluding the “city”, “town”, and “village” parts), and the legal personality is not continuous. In fact otherAbandonmentThere is such a case when the or boundary change is involved. For example, the following examples are given.

Shibuya Town, Kanagawa Prefecture →Shibuya Village(CurrentYamato)
Part of the town area was transferred to another city, the remaining town area was abolished, and at the same time a new village was established.
Miyata Town, Nagano Prefecture →Komagane→Miyata
After becoming a city by merging with other local governments, it was separated and reestablished as a new village.

As a case where "demotion" is avoided,Kami TownThere is.Great Heisei mergerAt the time of MiyagiKami-gunThen.Nakashinta Town,Onoda Town,Miyazaki Town,Sima TownThere was a plan to create Kami city by merging four towns. However, because Sekima-cho left the merger talks on the way, the total population fell below 4 and the conditions of the municipal system were not met, and the density of buildings in the center did not meet the requirements of the town prescribed by the prefectural ordinance. However, it was said that the merger would "regrade" to the village. There is no difference in “rank” between cities, towns, or villages, but the terms “demotion” and “promotion” are used in the news of Nishinihon Shimbun, for example, and the voices of the citizens who say “sorry” or “poor story” are covered. It was being done. As a result of amending the prefectural ordinance, it was finally decided to merge as Kami-cho.[4].


The municipalities areSelf-governmentAndOrdinance,RuleHas the autonomy legislative power to enact etc.

Differences between cities, towns and villages

Regarding the handling under the Local Autonomy Law, there is no big difference between the names of cities, towns and villages. Rather, there are large differences in population size and administrative capacity between cities that share the same name,Government-designated city,Core cityandSpecial city(The system was abolished in 2015 and integrated into the core city system. However, there are transitional measures) and the special provisions regarding the distribution of office work and the administrative district system (only for ordinance-designated cities) are established (252-19,Article 252-20), is very different from other cities and towns.

Municipalities do not have parliamentary ordinances, but instead are general meetings of voters.Municipal general meetingCan be provided (Articles 94 and 95 of the same law), but there are only a few examples. A case of Ashinoyu Village (now part of Hakone Town) in Ashigarashimo District, Kanagawa Prefecture under the enforcement of the town and village system, and Utsuki Village (current part of Hachijo Town. (See section)) has been reported.2006/(Heisei18 years) with multiple debtFiscal rebuilding organizationKiso County, Nagano PrefectureOtaki VillageHave been considered as a bill (rejection in the parliamentary resolution).

"Towns" and "villages" of local governments and "towns" and "villages" of villages

In Japan, apart from the "towns" and "villages" that are local public organizations, in the area (lower)VillageOr in the cityBlockThere are a group of "towns" and "villages".Most of them, even if they are official, except as described below.wordLike (bruises), it does not have legal personality and is only a geographical area.When writing the address, "○○ city〇〇 townWith the name of the city, ward, town, and village, such as "○○ address"addressDesignated as a level between.

When distinguishing by statistical field, the former is referred to as an administrative town or village, and the latter is referred to as an administrative village.Town streetIt may be called (butterfly).An example that the government office officially defines as an address notation such as a resident's card, and an example that is used in addressing and local events as a common name that has been familiar for a long time apart from the official notation (the postal code classification is set by the common name) It may be)[7][8].

There are a large number of "towns" in the plot name, and a relatively small number of "villages" (Village # Former administrative village that remains in the place nameSee).HistoricallyEdo PeriodSome of them are derived from the towns and villages of Japan, but they are often abandoned for a long time and do not have a simple correspondence.Also, the names of towns and villages in the Edo period wereLarge printHowever, it may remain.

How to read "town" and "village"

"town"Is"Butterfly"Or"Town","village"Is"So"Or"MuraHowever, the reading is clearly defined for each town and village.

Basically, the reading of “town” and “village” tends to be fixed in each prefecture, but there may be a small number of exceptions due to phonological relations and customs.

There are variations in how to read "town", but all the towns in the Kanto region are "towns", and the towns in the Kinki and Shikoku regions are "cho".Excluding HokkaidoEast JapanThere are many "towns", but especiallyIwateとMiyagiThen, both are mixed in a ratio that cannot be said to be large. vice versa,West JapanTends to have a lot of "butterflies",KyusyuHowever, there is no clear law because there are variations in each prefecture.

The reading of “village” is fixed for each prefecture except Kagoshima prefecture. Everything from eastern Japan to the Kinki region is "mura", but in some parts of western Japan it is "son", and Okinawa Prefecture, which has 19 villages, is all "son".

Reading of "town"
