Place name

Origin of city name

The etymology of the place name has various theories,

  1. Mr. KokubunBut"Chiyo CastleThe theory that comes from the name. This is because there were thousands of Buddhas at the position of the castle, and the thousands turned to become "Chiyo." One of the reasons for the change is that the castle was named for the wish to prosper in Chiyo. afterwards,Date MasamuneIs "Senpai" (New font"Sendai").
  2. AinuThe "Sep Nai (broad, river)" became "Sendai",Hirose RiverIs the origin of the name Sendai.
  3. The theory is that the Ainu word "Sen Nai (river entrance)" has changed to Sendai.
  4. It is said that it originated from the fact that the Kawauchi district where Sendai Castle is located was read aloud as "Sendai." In addition, there was Sendai City in Kagoshima Prefecture. (CurrentSatsumasendai)

, Etc. are the main ones, but the theory derived from 1. Kokubun is generally believed.

The expression "Senpai" revised by Masamune isChugoku OfFormer HanTeenagerStoriesAnd made it the subject唐TeenagerChinese poetryDerived from.

Former HanWendi TheLaoziI like the way ofYellow RiverI heard that there is a person who is familiar with Lao Tzu in the tributary, but I went to see him, but the man stayed in the hermitage and did not come out. When the Emperor threatened, "There is no royal land under the sky, and no one who is not a royal servant to the end of the earth", the man climbed into the air and said, "Up to heaven, inside is a person.

"Tanka" in the above sentence is the residence of the gods. It is said that the notation of "Senpai" is directly derived from this "same title Senyukan"[27] However, there is also a view that it was named after the fact of "Senyukan".[28].. The fact is that the hermit is the monarchpowerTo indicate that theKeicho5May 9(1600May 10)ofBattle of SekigaharaByTokugawa Ieyasu People of the worldApproximately 3 months later, Keicho 5 years when the construction of Sendai Castle startedMay 12(1601May 1), Masamune is said to have transcended the power of Ieyasu under the name of "Senpai".After the war"Senpai" isNew fontIt came to be written as "Sendai" using.


In addition to "Sendai", the following examples can be found in the kanji notation for this item "Sendai".

  • Chiyo (notation before the opening of the office by Date Masamune)
  • Senpai (From the opening of the city by Date MasamuneKanji(Notation until introduction)
  • Predecessor (Example: "Kara Predecessor Hagi])
  • 僊臺 (eg: "僊臺區and neighborhood village 圖圖[29]")

Of these, “Chiyo” and “Senpai” are often used as trade names for Sendai souvenirs.

Since "僊" is a variant of "Sen" and "Tai" is an orthographic form of "Tai", there are three types of "Sendai, Chiyo, and predecessor" excluding the difference in font.

Changes in the urban axis of Sendai after the war

High economic growthThe city axis up to the period followed the old Oshu Kaido, where railroads run in parallel.National Route 4Along (the area south of the city center) and northeastTaga Castle-Shiogama-MatsushimaHead toNational Route 45It was formed around the area. In the early 1960s, mainly in Sendai cityMatsushima TownからIwanuma CityMerged overGovernment-designated cityI aimed for a transition, but it ended in failure. It is said that the cause was that the conservative chiefs of the surrounding cities and towns hated the innovative city administration of Sendai at that time. At this time, the day before the signing of the merger, the mayor of Tagajo Town (currently Tagajo City) suddenly criticized the merger and withdrew from the merger, so the Sen-en merger collapsed overnight. The transition of Sendai City to an ordinance-designated city was also postponed, resulting in a significant delay in the development of the city.

After that, against the background of population growth, surround the city center in the hills from the north to the southwest of the city.New residential areaWas created.

The city of Sendai divided into east and west

Sendai Station West Exit Side

The city of SendaiSendai Station,andTohoku Shinkansen-Tohoku Main LineIt is roughly divided into east and west. The west exit side of Sendai Station was the center of Sendai, a castle town from the Edo period, and it has been the center until now, but the Hirose River in the south and the west in the west.Aobayama, The north is Kitayama-the hills of Dainohara, and the east is the Tohoku Shinkansen, which is surrounded on all sides, and it is not easy to expand the city center. for that reason,Bubble periodBeyond the economic power of local companies in SendaiLand priceThere was concern that a surge would occur, but it had been developed before the bubble era.Subway Namboku LineAmong other thingsIzumi Chuo FukutoshinandNagamachi FukutoshinDue to the existence of the land price, the upward pressure on land prices promoted the dispersion of urban functions in Izumi Chuo and Nagamachi, and the surge was avoided. On the other hand, in the deflationary period, the decline in land prices in the city center, which became sparse with respect to the city scale, did not stop, and low-rise office buildings and low-rise housing on the land where the collateral value decreased were replaced by high-rise condominiums, etc. It is promoting the return to the city center.

Sendai Station East Exit Side

on the other hand,Sendai StationThe east exit side of the area was a district where the old townscape remained. Especially on the southeast sideWakabayashi WardHas the taste of downtown, and the place names that have been around since the Edo period remain. In the paddy field that was adjacent to the east side of this downtown area, in the 1960sSendai bypassAt the same time, a vast distribution / industrial park such as a wholesaler / distributor / car-related business establishment and an industrial park for the printing industry was built in wholesale town, Rokuchome, Ogimachi, etc. Since the designation of commercial land and industrial land was not specified, and the designation of surrounding paddy fields was not canceled by the national and municipal governments, the background population did not increase and the commercial agglomeration of the east exit was hindered. In the 90s, when "hollow distribution" that did not pass through wholesale became mainstream, the significance of the existence of wholesale towns diminished, and the movement to lift regulations and convert to residential areas began.Subway Tozai LineWas promoted by the construction of.

In addition,Sengoku LineLand readjustment and redevelopment due to undergrounding ofList of land readjustment projects in Sendai,List of redevelopment in Japan #Miyagi Prefecture), The shape of the city at the east exit has changed significantly.

Sendai and other towns and villages in the Sendai city area

The history of Sendai as a city isKeicho5May 12(1601May 1)ofDate MasamunebySendai CastleConstruction begins. The range of Sendai in the Edo period, which was called Sendai Wannouchi or Sendai Wanchu,AobayamaSendai Castle and Kawauchi at the foot of the river,Hirose RiverIt is 5 km north-south and 4 km east-west, consisting of a castle town built on the plateau on the opposite bank, which is a small part of the present city area. In the Middle Ages, there were several temples on Mt. Aoba, and there was the appearance of a local sacred place, but the place that later became a castle town was a wilderness with rare houses from the ancient times to the Middle Ages.

However, if you look at the history of the city of Sendai today, you can see the rise and change of many villages and towns. It is a rice paddy site from the Yayoi periodTomizawa RuinsThe area around and was the center of the area where many burial mounds were built during the Kofun period. From the end of the 7th century to the beginning of the 8th centuryKoriyama ruinsToMutsuKokufu was set up. In the 8th century, on the north side of Minami Koizumi SiteMutsu Kokubunji TempleとMutsu Kokubun NunneryWas built. In the Middle AgesTaga CastleFrom Kokuto moved to Iwakiri in the northeastern part of the city, and a town was formed. During the Warring States Period, there was a town called Kokubun Himachi from Kokubunji Temple to Minami Koizumi Ruins. In the middle ages, villages and samurai houses were built in various places from the plain to the mountain basin.              

In the following description, even Sendai until the Middle Ages refers to the range of Sendai in the Edo period, and when referring to the current range of Sendai, it is particularly referred to as Sendai City Area. After the Edo period, Sendai of each period is called Sendai to distinguish it from the current city area.

For some time from the end of the 7th century, in the southern part of the cityKoriyama ruinsToMutsu OfKokufuWas placed. Higashi-Taga Shrine and Nishi-Taga Shrine were built on the east and west sides of the Koriyama Site, and the surrounding area is one of the largest in the Tohoku region.Ring moatThere was also[46]..

When Taga Castle lost its function as a national government office in the middle of the 10th century, the national government office was located at the northeastern end of the Sendai city area.Seven Kitada RiverIt is estimated that it moved to the north bank. Until the Kamakura and Nanbokucho periods, it was called Taga Kokufu. Towns were formed on both sides of the Nanakita River, and now on the north bankTagajo CityIt had spread to a part of.

Land improvement projects are being carried out in the plains and flatlands along rivers in the eastern part of the city, large rectangular fields have been developed, and large-scale rice cultivation is being carried out using large agricultural machines. Since these large-scale fields are maintained with some taxes, the conversion to commercial or residential areas is regulated by ordinance.

  • Google Maps If you look at the satellite image of, you can see that the development of farmland in the eastern part of Sendai City and especially along the Nanakita River is regulated, and you can see the difference in agricultural policy from other big cities. That is, while other large cities are concentric if they are on flat land, and most of the flat land is urbanized if they are in valleys, the Sendai metropolitan area is subject to agricultural land development restrictions except along main roads and conventional lines. There is.

In this way, the flat land along the river and the vast plains in the eastern part cannot be used for commercial areas or residential areas unless the designation of farmland is canceled. Therefore, housing supply to cope with population growth is exclusively in the central part of Sendai city. It was made by creating a residential area in the surrounding hills. Residential land development proceeded mainly in the northwestern part near the city center, but due to the shortage of supply, it encouraged Sendai citizens to move to neighboring cities and towns.Natori City-Tomiya City-Rifu TownContributed to population growth.

Sendai city officials have politically protected farmland in the plains. Due to the political judgment, paddy fields remain in the plains and along the river, and in the summer it becomes a path for the wind.Heat island phenomenonIt also contributes to the maintenance of the landscape as a green belt that surrounds the city center along with the western mountains.

On the other hand, Sendai City's farmland policy promoted the urban structure of "agricultural land on flat land and residential area on hills, except in the city center." Therefore, each residential area is a hilly area.Island-like distributionHowever, because there are many slopes between the city center and residential areas, the car society has been accelerated, and the population density is low, forming an inefficient metropolitan area where work and residence are separated for the population. Currently, the inefficiency has not disappeared, but the de-designation of farmland is gradually progressing, and the flat land between "islands" is becoming commercial and residential areas.
