City structure

Trade in the former five citiesChikuho coalfieldA harbor was developed as a shipping base, and the railway network was developed in conjunction with the development of the heavy chemical industry in seaside areas such as steel mills. In addition to the terrain with few flatlands and complicated mountainous areas,Buzen Country-Chikuzen countryIt has a historical background that is different from that of today and still has its own cultural and lifestyle ties.[Primary material 16].

From such a background, the urban structure of Kitakyushu City developed around the railway stations of the former five cities, and these were connected along the railway to form a long and narrow city axis.[Primary material 16].

Since public facilities have been developed in units of old cities, it has the characteristic that the area of ​​public facilities per capita is the largest among the 20 ordinance-designated cities nationwide.[23].

After that, the city structure has two north-south axes, which are the east-west axis from Honshu to Fukuoka, the Okura direction from Okura, and the Kurosaki direction to the direct direction due to the improvement of the transportation network, the accumulation of various functions on the city axis, and the progress of suburbanization. It has shifted to a π (pie) type urban structure. This city axis intersectsKokura,KurosakiThen, the transportation nodule function and the base property have improved.[Primary material 16].

As for the population of the former five cities, the ratio of both Yawata and Ogura cities was slightly high before the merger, but the five cities were merged on the basis of "multi-nuclear city theory", aiming for balanced development of the former five cities.[28]. But,1988 (Showa 63)Kitakyushu Renaissance PlanHas led to a "centralized city" centered on the two poles of central Ogura (Kogura-ku) and Kurosaki sub-center (Hachimansai-ku).[28].. Against the backdrop of these policy changes, urban functions such as commerce, culture, administration, and business facilities have been concentrated in central Ogura, while commercial functions have declined in the Kurosaki area, and the two-polar structure of Ogura and Kurosaki is concentrated Is changing to[29].

However, due to the prefecture merger on August 1876, 8, Kokura prefecture was split and most of the areas were merged with Fukuoka prefecture. After that, the entire area corresponding to the city area of ​​Kitakyushu will belong to Fukuoka Prefecture.

1889 yearsMunicipal system-Municipal systemDue to the enforcement, each of them laid a town system, and during the Taisho era, Moji City, Kokura City, Tobata City, Wakamatsu City, Yawata City (later the area corresponding to the entire Yawata Higashi Ward and Hachiman Nishi Ward Kurosaki District. The rest of the Hachiman Nishi Ward is The merger was established in 12, 19 and 30 years of Showa.

From that time, mergers of five cities (in some cases, seven cities including Shimonoseki and intermediate cities) were proposed, but these five cities merged (new merger) on February 1963, 2.[2]On October 4stGovernment-designated cityBecame. Regarding the new city name, as a result of public recruitment of the new city name after the merger, the first place is "SaikyoCityIt was,KyotoThere is objection to the name including the name of "Kitakyushu City", which was the second place. Takashi Deguchi, who served as the chairman of the Kitakyushu City Association, was asked by a special committee to decide the name of the new city.AmakoI don't have a history of being marked, but I wonder if it's okay to call myself Kyo."[36].

By the way, the name "Kitakyushu" operated in this area.NishitetsuAs a generic term for tram (all abolished in November 2000) routesKitakyushu LineHowever, it has been used since 1942 (Showa 17) when Nishitetsu was established. 1943年(昭和18年)12月に閣議決定された「都市疎開実施要綱」では、門司・小倉・戸畑・若松・八幡の五市が「北九州地域」とされたIn the "Urban Evacuation Implementation Guidelines" decided by the Cabinet in December XNUMX (Showa XNUMX), the five cities of Moji, Kokura, Tobata, Wakamatsu, and Yawata were designated as the "Kitakyushu area".[37].

Also in the cityKitakyushu City UniversityThe predecessor of Kitakyushu University of Foreign Studies (at that time, from 1953 to 2000 was "Kitakyushu University") had been bearing "Kitakyushu" since 1950, and from 1923 (Taisho 12) in the national textbook, Yawata City, The industrial area of ​​Tobata City isKitakyushu Industrial AreaWas written. Both can be named as the names used to represent this area before the establishment of Kitakyushu.

However, due to the name "Kitakyushu" that arose from its position as the northernmost part of Kyushu, when expressing the north and south of the Kyushu region like "Kita Kanto / Minami Kanto", it should not be confused with Kitakyushu City.Northern Kyushu・ There is a unique expression called "South Kyushu" that is not found in other areas.Regarding this issue, Kagoshima Prefecture in 2009MinamikyushuWith the birth of Kyushu, the word "Southern Kyushu", which had not been used in the past, is gradually becoming more confusing.In addition, on July 2008, 7, we signed an exchange agreement between "North and South" Kyushu City, which is one character different from the city.Coincidentally, the flowers of the city are also "sunflowers" in both cities.

Kitakyushu has always been a key transportation hub,Heavy chemical industryIt is also a prosperous city. Since ancient timesChikuhoRegion,Kyotsukiarea,OngaRegion,Fukuoka CityNot only in the surrounding area but also in Yamaguchi PrefectureShimonoseki,Ube City,Sanyo Onoda,Mine City,Oita OfNakatsu,Usa CityThe relationship with other regions is historically and culturally close and spans these three prefectures centering on the city.Kanmon metropolitan areaIs formed.

In particular, it has a very strong historical relationship with Yamaguchi Prefecture and is strongly influenced by both cultural and economic aspects. Used in the cityKitakyushu dialectIs also heavily influenced by the surrounding area, but as mentioned earlier, it was a different country in history, and in the west and eastern parts of the city as well.dialectCan be seen in the difference.

In addition,Hibiki NadaThe entire city area today has been a military strategic point for a long time.

The Tsukita area is a residential area that was developed by land readjustment around 10, but it was constructed as a community road due to the use of it as an escape road for main roads and environmental degradation due to annoying parking. An artificial stream with a width of 1.5–2.5 meters has been created on the road, creating fountains and murmuring. Relief plates of 70 cm square, such as dragonflies, kingfishers, and fireflies, are set on the sidewalk at intervals of 20 meters. In addition, the roadside trees in the planted zone are arranged with tree species that can enjoy flowers, fresh greenery and autumn leaves according to the changes of the four seasons, and the Tsukita River flowing nearby also has cherry trees on the riverbank and cobblestones on the riverbed, creating an environment where children can play. As a result, rivers, roads, and parks are integrated and maintained.[69].. In the maintenance plan, Kitakyushu City and local residents worked together, and upon completion, the residents named the road and the murmuring plaza, and the residents' association received a "slogan monument to protect everyone" and donations from Nishikigoi.[69]..
