Hitachi City(Hitachi)IbarakiFacing the Pacific Ocean in the northern part of the prefecture in the northeastCity..Most of the city area is oldTaga-gunAnd someKuji-gunIs.General electronics manufacturerHitachi, Ltd.Known as the founding place of.


Hitachi mineIt is a mining and manufacturing city developed from[1].. In 1905 (Meiji 38), the Akazawa Copper Mine in Hitachi Village, which had been mined since the Edo period,Kunosuke KuharaAcquired and renamed Hitachi Mine after the village name, Kuhara Mining Co., Ltd. (currentlyJX Metal) Since its foundingCastle townIn later years, the machinery division was separated and became independent.Hitachi, Ltd.-Hitachi GroupIt will be a company town, but the current headquarters of the Hitachi Group is located in Tokyo.Another area that has changed from a mining town to a company town like Hitachi CityEhimeNiihama(Besshi Copper Mine→Sumitomo Group) AndYamaguchi Ube City(Ube Coal Mine→Ube Industries) Is typical.

7st century OfNational constructionSince the time of the present, the center of Hitachi City has been助川The place name was (Sukegawa), but on September 1939, 14 (Showa 9)Sukegawa-choHas a Hitachi MineHitachichoとNew mergerAnd when laying down the city systemHitachi CityIt became. After 1939, in order to avoid confusion between city names and company names, Hitachi citizens changed the city name to "日立(Hitachi) ”, and Hitachi, Ltd.日製(Nissei) ”to distinguish[2](The abbreviation of Nissei is former Nissei Shoji = current Hitachi High-Technologies, etc.Hitachi GroupBut also used).

During the postwar period, the population was the location of the prefectural officeMitoHowever, in recent years, the population has decreased due to the reorganization of the Hitachi Group, and despite the incorporation of Juou Town, the population, which had counted 21 at its peak, has fallen below 20. CurrentlyTsukuba CityIt was overtaken by the prefecture and ranked third in the prefecture.Nearly half of the populationHitachi, Ltd.Related employees and their families.

Origin of city name

In 1939 (Showa 14), the former Hitachi Town and the former Sukegawa Town merged on an equal footing to become "Hitachi City".In addition, it should be notedToyota CitySimilarly, a company with the same name as the municipality,Hitachi, Ltd.Although it is the birthplace, the place name Hitachi has existed for a long time.Therefore, it may have been one of the reasons when deciding the name, but it is not accurate that Hitachi is the origin of the city name.

Birth of Hitachi Village

Under the influence of the great merger that took place from the Meiji era to the Showa era, the administrative districts and administrative types have changed through the flow from village to town and from town to city.The name "Hitachi" was first used in administrative districts or place names in 1889 (Meiji 22), when the former Miyada Village and the former Namegawa Village merged to form "Hitachi Village".[3].

Existence of Takatada Sato

For the birth of Hitachi Village, the "Keichu Sato Shojisho" written in 7 and the historical materials at the time of the transition to town administration compiled in the latter half of the Taisho era are detailed.[4]..The original of the historical material has disappeared, and it can be confirmed only in the manuscript conducted in the process of "Hitachi City History Compilation Project" conducted by Hitachi City in 32.[3].

Hitachi Village was created by the merger of Miyada Village and Namegawa Village, but literally does not include the name (character) of the merged village. Regarding the origin of "Hitachi", there is a theory derived from Tokugawa Mitsukuni, which will be described later, but it is becoming clear that the influence of Takatada Sato is large due to the existing books, historical materials, and history compilation activities of Hitachi City.[4].

In 1863 (7th year of Tenpo), Takatada SatoFormer Nakazato VillageAfter being born as Keichu, the third son of the Aizawa family in Nakafukahagi Village, Kuji-gun (currently merged into Hitachi City), he was adopted by the Sato family, a wealthy family in Miyada Village, and became Takatada Sato.

Keichu served the lord of the Mito domain and made great achievements such as calming the turmoil that occurred in the domain.As a result, in just four years from 1986 (Meiji 4) in the lunar calendar, the mayors of seven villages from Sukegawa Village to Orikasa Village were ordered.After that, the range of control was further expanded, and from Mizuki Village to Satokawa Nitta (formerly).Satomi Village,CurrentlyHitachiota CityIt governed a vast range up to (incorporated into).Satokawa Nitta was a project that was promoted by the clan as a Nitta development project that included the former Satomi village and surrounding rivers at the end of the Edo period, and considering the circumstances at that time, it means that the newly developed area was also entrusted. It is presumed that the influence of Keichu in the present Hitachi City and the former Satomi Village was enormous.Actually starting from 1873 (Meiji 6)Ground revisionBy then, he was in charge of ward mayors in 7 villages and school district control in 34 villages.

Village name battle after the merger

In 1889 (Meiji 22), the merger of Miyada Village and Namegawa Village was decided by the order of Ibaraki Prefecture.As mentioned above, there are no documents or records that clearly describe the background and reasons for choosing the name "Hitachi."However, after a combination of fragmentary evidence and an interview with the descendants of Takatada Sato conducted by the history editor, a dispute arose between the two villages over the name of the village after the merger, and Takatada Sato played an arbitrator role. Is roughly estimated to have fulfilled[3]..By the way, when Hitachi-cho and Sukegawa-cho merged into "Hitachi City" in 1939 (Showa 14), there was a dispute over the name.

The city history compilation project was led by Hitachi City and has been undertaken since the early 30's, and includes past materials and interviews by the editors, and was released in 1959 (Showa 34).In the process of the compilation business, we interviewed Mr. Mitsu Sato, the grandson of Takatada Sato, and left a record of his grandfather Keitada acting as an arbitrator in the process when the village name was decided to be "Hitachi". Although there was a "Sato family old record"Pacific WarIt was revealed that it disappeared in the war.

Ginjugami Shrine and Hitachi Furyumono

Listed on the Intangible Cultural Heritage List by the UNESCO Intangible Heritage CommitteeHitachi hitoshiIs an important key in unraveling the history of the merger of the former villages and counties in Hitachi City.

1695 (8th year of Genroku),Tokugawa MitsukuniIt is the beginning of Hitachi Furyumono that a float was put out at the big festival of Kamine Shrine by the order of.At that time, Kamine Shrine was opened in Miyata, Sukegawa, and Aise.GuardianBecame.The place where Kamine Shrine is erected is Miyata Village, and Hitachi Furyumono was called "Miyata Furyumono" for a long time. When four floats gather toward Kamine Shrine only once every seven years. The floats are managed by the town councils (Kitacho, Higashimachi, Nishimachi, Honmachi) that divide Miyatacho into four parts.The existence of the shrine at the time of Meiji 7 was large, and the fact that the three areas of Miyata, Sukegawa, and Aise were guarded, and the residents of Miyada Village complained about the name, was reported by the history editor. Revealed in an interview[3].

There are shrines in each of the three areas that were protected by Mitsukuni's orders, including Kamine Shrine (Miyada Village), Sukegawa Kashima Shrine (Sukegawa Village), and Aise Kashima Shrine (Ose Village).Although there is a shrine enshrining the chinjugami Rokusho Myojin in Namegawa Village, it was not ordered by Mitsukuni.It still exists in Namekawahoncho, Hitachi City, and from 3 (Meiji 1873), it began to call itself "Shiogama Shrine."The shrine does not have a resident priest, but the residents of the former Namegawa village are still taking turns, and the shrine is open on New Year's Eve, New Year's Eve, and New Year's Eve.

For this reason, it is presumed that he hated the disappearance of the word "Miyada" due to the merger of Miyada Village and Namegawa Village, but no documents clearly recorded other than the interview have been found so far.

Remnants of the old village in modern times

Former Miyada Village is located in the area around Kaminecho, Hitachi City, centered on "Kirikida," "Miyada," and "Komaou" in the west.Mt. Kamine"Kamimine" and "Akazawa" that spread to the side correspond.Even now, those names remain, such as "Kirikida Ground (behind the Hitachi Fire Department)" and "" in 2-chome, Kaminecho.

The former Namegawa Village corresponds to the area that extends along the coast, centered on "Obata" and "Shimizu" located around the current Higashinamekawa-cho, Hitachi City.The existing ones are "Obata Community Center" in Higashinamekawacho 1-chome.National Route 6There is "Shimizuhama" on the beach along the Hitachi Bypass.In addition, although "Namekawahoncho" exists in Hitachi City, the name "Namekawahoncho" or "Namekawahon" does not exist in the former Namekawamura, and it is a town name created when the city administration began.

Furthermore, it is interesting that the history of the merger of Miyada Village and Namegawa Village remains in a special way even today.One of them is the school regulations for public elementary and junior high schools in the former Namegawa village area.

The Hitachi City Board of Education has adopted a school district system, and public elementary and junior high schools are decided according to where they live.However, there are exceptions in the current Higashinamekawacho 1-chome and 2-chome, which correspond to the center of the former Namekawa village, and you can choose from two junior high schools, Komao Junior High School and Namekawa Junior High School. ..This selection system started in the mid-2s and is relatively new.As for the background of selectivity, most of the children attending Miyata Elementary School go on to Komao Junior High School according to the regulations of the school district system, so it was realized at the request of the parents of the children living in the area.Until the adoption of selectivity, it was a rule to attend Miyada Elementary School (former Miyada Village) for elementary school and Namekawa Junior High School (former Namegawa Village) for junior high school.

Namekawa Junior High School is a relatively new school that opened in 1980 (Showa 55), and until the opening of Namekawa Junior High School, children in the same area also attended Komao Junior High School.Namekawa Elementary School also opened in 1973 (Showa 48), but the reason for attending Miyata Elementary School is still unclear, and the distance to school is closer to Namekawa Elementary School.

Birth of Hitachi City

In 1939 (Showa 14), the former Hitachi Town and the former Sukegawa Town merged on an equal footing to become Hitachi City, but it was not possible to use either town name from an equal standpoint, and Hitachi Mine was the new city as a mediation plan. Although we proposed "Hitachi City" as the name, discussions were unsuccessful, and the new city name was left to Ibaraki Prefecture.[5]..Then, the prefecture decided the new city name as Hitachi City because Hitachi Mine and Hitachi are already known nationwide.[5][6]..Due to the decision of the new city name in Ibaraki Prefecture, the reason was not taken from the former Hitachicho, so it was accepted by the former Sukegawacho, which is the center of the city.[5]..Before the establishment of Hitachi, Ltd. (and its parent company, Japan Mining), there was a local government called "Hitachi Village", but the place name of "Hitachi" climbed Mt. Kamine.Tokugawa MitsukuniIt is the established theory that it was named byGreat Meiji mergerIt is said that the former Hitachi Village (later enforced the town system and became Hitachi Town), which was established in, was named after the tradition of Mitsukuni.[5].

Transportation condition

Due to the geographical development of the urban area between the mountains and the sea from east to west, National Route 6 and National Route 245 in the city are congested during morning and evening commuting, and when passing through Hitachi City during the daytime, it is considerable.

Relieving traffic congestion is one of the issues in the city, and various measures are being taken.Currently, National Route 6 runs along the coast of Tajiricho-Kawarago-cho in the northern part of Hitachi City.bypassHas been completed.Apart from National Route 6, a prefectural road route over the mountains between Ogitsu and Ishinazaka is also planned, and part of the Taga area and Ishinazaka are open.
