Over the city name

City name selection process

In the Iga Creation Plan formulated in 1990, "Iga CityThe wording "to aim for" appears, etc.Great Heisei mergerFrom before the flow ofIga CityWas preceded by the name.When deciding the actual name of the city, we will openly solicit as the name of the city including Nabari City, and based on the resultIga CityI decided.The results of the open call for participants were 1st place "Iga City", 2nd place "Iga Ueno City", and 3rd place "Iga City".[1]..After that, Nabari CityReferendumAlthough the merger was withdrawn from the merger concept based on the result of the merger being rejected in[2], Even at the legal merger council after Nabari City left, the name of the city was changed as the result of the open call for participants.Iga CityDecided[Annotation 1].

In response to this decision, "The name of Iga City is strange because it is not a merger of Iga as a whole." "High name recognitionIga UenoThere was an opinion that the name of the city should be "Iga Ueno City" as part of the former Ueno City Council.In addition, there was a signing campaign by residents so that the name of the city would not be "Iga City".[3][Annotation 2]Finally, I settled down in "Iga City".

Impact of city name decision

By the way, Ueno City is the sixth town in Mie Prefecture to have a city system.Great Showa mergerIt also existed at times.Among the cities that existed in Mie Prefecture from this time, it is the only city whose name has changed after the merger as a result of the Great Heisei Consolidation.[Annotation 3]..Ueno City was the first case where cities that existed in Mie Prefecture before the Great Heisei Consolidation merged, and the name of the local government changed.Local government codeChanged to the last city.Therefore, it was the last city to appear in the prefecture's statistical data.

Also, in the area that used to be Iga-cho, there was a risk of being confused if the name of the facility in the former Iga-cho after the merger was given the name "Iga", so it is called "Igamachi" or "Tsuge". Many facilities have a crown in their name.

Ueno City and Aoyamacho disappeared as municipal names due to the establishment of Iga City, but there are some that did not affect the names, such as the fact that they still exist as station names. (Detail isUenoshi Station-Aoyamacho Station(See section)

Town name / character name
