Origin of place name
The name of the current Kurashiki City is derived from the former place name "Kurashiki Village" in the area around the Kurashiki Bikan Historical Quarter, which is also known as a tourist destination nationwide. The place name Kurashiki was a place to collect annual tribute rice and tributes from the surrounding territories in order to send them to the lord in the Middle Ages.Kura siteThe theory that it is derived from "is considered to be influential among local historians. Kurashiki Village is said to have once been the site of Kurashiki. It is said that "Kurayashiki" was changed to "Kurayashiki" because "Kurayashiki" was lined up, and "Kurayashiki" is also said to mean "Kurayashiki" or "Kurayashiki". .. It is said that Kurashiki Village was born between the Warring States period and the Azuchi-Momoyama period (1565 to 1585), and was sometimes written as "Kurashiki" or "Kurasuke". In the Edo period, the Shogunate Daikansho was set up and became a Jinya town, and it also became a distribution center for supplies. The foundation around the current Bikan Historical Quarter was born.
In addition, although Kurashiki sites were located all over the country, there are cases where place names derived from Kurashiki sites remain until the present day, as in Kurashiki City. For example, in the same Okayama prefectureMimasakaHayashino has also been called Kurashiki Village since the Warring States period. In addition, this also became a heavenly territory during the Edo period and had a representative office.1918(Taisho 7) MimasakaAida DistrictKurashiki Town has been renamed to Hayashino Town, which is derived from the old town name of Hayanogo.Tokubo-gunThe name of Kurashiki was handed over to Kurashiki Town. Even now, from the forest to the Yoshino River (Yoshii RiverThe word Shimokurashiki remains in Kose, Mimasaka City, downstream of the tributary.Uno BusThere are still remnants of the Kurashiki site, such as the Shimokurashiki bus stop on the route operated by.
Change of city limits
Kurashiki, Ajino, and Tamashima villages, where the county office was located in the Meiji era, absorbed the surrounding villages, and these areas separated by large-scale rivers and mountains spread their municipality and expanded the city area. .. Showa 36, Governor Miki Okayama PrefectureSaidaiji City・33 municipalities including former Kurashiki city, Kojima city, Tamashima city, Tamano city, and former Soja city will mergeOkayama Prefecture South Million City Construction PlanWas proposed by the council and all municipal councils reached a merger agreement.
However, the three city chiefs of Kurashiki, Okayama, and Kojima did not apply for the merger,Yukio TakahashiThe disappearance of Mayor Kurashiki (This is called "China News", which is the act of occupying the parliamentary seats of men and women, which is believed to have been prepared by the merger promotion group, in addition to the pressure of Governor Miki and Kiyoshi Mori Kiyoshi.Red newspaperMayor Kurashiki's slanderous defamation caused by the issuance, etc., was distributed as a newspaper article for free, and disappeared due to the fact that Mayor Takahashi felt himself in danger before and after the signing ceremony), and the withdrawal of 3 cities and Governor Miki's Due to sudden death, it was never realized.
After the idea of a million city merger failed,Ministry of Home AffairsUnder SecretaryBy presenting the relief plan, the policy was changed to the Bizen block centered on Okayama city and the Bizen block centered on the former Kurashiki city, and each block was gradually merged.After that, the former Kurashiki City, Kojima City, and Tamashima City, which had joined the merger council, were merged. It is said that there was a desire to avoid each other's territorial disputes related to.In other words, the Mizushima coastal industrial zone, which was the origin of the Okayama prefecture south million city construction plan problem, is within the area of the former three cities, and the boundary between the three cities at that time, such as the sea and rivers in the Kurashiki city Mizushima, Kojima city, and Tamashima city districts. It is said that the merger prevented the outbreak of the sovereignty dispute while the line was not fixed vaguely.

Until the mid-1990s Kurashiki was an industrial area andKojima Boat RacecourseWith abundant income fromLocal allocation taxIt was a non-delivering organization that did not receive any treatment.Therefore, there were many unpopular voices from the citizens, such as the construction of luxurious facilities such as city halls and roads that seemed excessive. Despite the flattening of population growthLand use planningIs not reviewed,SprawlThe public works expenses represented by the sewer system swelled and put pressure on the public finances.[Source required] As a result, as the income declines due to the prolonged economic downturn, it becomes a local allocation tax delivery organization.
Currently working on reducing spending. For example, administrative measures are reviewed every year by a rolling system for three years to reduce projects that do not require urgency, control the issuance of municipal bonds that are debts, and reduce the number of municipal staff by outsourcing facility management. However, the transfer of tax sources as part of decentralization has not progressed momentarily, and the financial situation is still difficult due to the drastic decrease in local allocation tax grants and the redemption of municipal bonds.
