    Area classification

    The regional division is the basis of the prefectural life in both broad and narrow senses.climate-Climate-dialect(Sanuki dialectSee) etc. are also different.During the Edo period, Kagawa Prefecture was divided into two parts, the Tosan, which is governed by the Takamatsu Domain in the east, and the Seisan, which is governed by the Marugame Domain, in the west.However, from the viewpoint of local administration and the sense of life of the residents, it is considered that they are actually roughly divided into five, but in recent years, the regional division has become weaker due to the development of transportation means.

    Dong San area
    Population 111,834 Area 388.03km2
    In the area east of Takamatsu City, Sanuki City, Higashikagawa City, and Miki Town fall under this category.Miki Town is included in the Takamatsu area in the Kagawa Prefecture Wide Area Water Supply Enterprises Group.Although there was no city until the great merger of Heisei, Higashikagawa City Sanbonmatsu, which prospered as a commercial city of Higashikagawa from ancient times, Higashikagawa City Hiketa, which is famous for yellowtail cultivation, Higashikagawa City Shirotori, which was famous for producing gloves, etc. It is a unique area.Although depopulation is progressing, Miki Town and Shido Town in Sanuki City, which are close to Takamatsu City, have become commuter towns in Takamatsu City, and there is a large difference in population increase and decrease within the region.
    Nakasan area
    Population 292,603 Area 589km2
    The Nakasan area is centered on Marugame City, which is the second largest city in the prefecture, and includes Marugame City, Sakaide City, Zentsuji City, Utazu Town, Ayagawa Town, Tadotsu Town, Kotohira Town, and Manno Town.Ayagawa Town is included in the Takamatsu area in the classification of the Kagawa Prefectural Wide Area Water Supply Corporation.Sanuki udon actually starts in this Chusan area, and the super-famous udon shops that drive the boom are also overwhelmingly in this Chusan area.In addition, each city and town has tourist destinations that represent Kagawa Prefecture, such as Marugame Castle, Seto Ohashi, the new entrance to Shikoku, Zentsuji, Kotohiragu Shrine, Gold Tower, and Shaolin Temple Kenpo, making it a unique area.
    Nishisan area
    Population 128,668 Area 340.13km2
    Kanonji City and Mitoyo City correspond to the area west of the Chusan area.Kanonji City used to prosper as a commercial city of Seisan.There is Kotohiki Park, which is famous for the sand paintings of Kanei Tsuho.It is also in this town that LOTO 7 won 16 billion yen.Mitoyo City was a countryside, but in recent years, large-scale commercial facilities have expanded into the country.Chichibugahama is a famous city.

    When considering Kagawa prefectures that are long in the east and west, the most frequently used one isGoshikidaiTo the eastern part ofTosan"(Tou-san), to the westNishisan(Sei-san). This name was formerly Kagawa PrefectureSanuki countryBecause it is consistent with the range of the above, it is a term with the east and west attached to the old country name "Sanuki". This scale is a well-established concept that even in the conversation of citizens of the prefecture, the word "Western" is called "western" or simply "west", and the East is called "eastern" or simply "east". is there.

    According to the phrase according to this method,Nakasan(Chu-san), but this represents a narrower range, and the range indicated by this scale is different even when the same “Saisan” is mentioned. Similarly, "Tosan" also has a narrow sense that refers to the range excluding the Takamatsu and Azuki areas. There is a concept that the Shodo area is also included in the narrow sense of east sanction, but since Shodoshima is connected by Takamatsu in all, it is separated from the eastern Kagawa prefecture where there is no direct connection, or simply the Shodo area. It is often called Shodoshima.

    In addition, there is the concept of including the Takamatsu city in the East Sanction and dividing the rest of the western part into a total of three parts, Nakasan and Nishisan, but in this case, the region where the prefecture capital is located is considered to be Nakasan. In most cases, the city of Takamatsu, which is the capital of the prefecture, is specially designated as the “Takamatsu area”.

    This division, which is also used in administrative divisions, weather forecasts, prefectural high school districts, etc., is divided into local governments, so there were many cases where the affiliation changed due to the merger of municipalities. Especially in the Heisei Great Merger, it merged with Takamatsu City.Ryuta CountyKokubunji TownIn addition to changing the affiliation area of ​​the West from East Sanction,Kida-gunAnji TownMure TownAlso due to the merger with Takamatsu City, the affiliation area changed from the narrow sense of Tosan to the Takamatsu area.


    Including 8 cities, 5 districts, and 9 towns. In Kagawa Prefecture, all towns as local governments are read as "chou". The village disappeared in 1970.
