The current prefectural area of ​​Nagano Prefecture is a province of JapanShinano countryIs almost equivalent to.However, the oldKamisaka Village・OldYamaguchi Village GifuNakatsugawaToTransboundary transferAs it was done, there are slight differences, so "ShinshuIt is often called "Shinshu", especially in tourist guides it is called "Shinshu". In ancient times, I wrote Shinano[3]..Known as one of the top longevity prefectures in Japan, as of 2020, by prefectureHealthy life expectancySo both men and women were number one[4].

Nagano PrefectureHonshuLocated in the central part, it is adjacent to the surrounding 8 prefectures, and is a prefecture area that is short in the east and west and long in the north and south, with about 128 kilometers east and west and about 220 kilometers north and south.The southern half of the prefecture is close to the Pacific Ocean side,Minami Shinshu areaMany ofTokyoSouth of the prefecture, the northernmost tip of the prefectureNasushiobara,IwakiIt is almost the same latitude as.The area of ​​Nagano prefecture is 13,562.23square kilometerAnd this isSouth KantoIt is close to the total area of ​​1 metropolitan area and 3 prefectures, and in Japan's prefectures,Hokkaido,Iwate,FukushimaIt has the fourth largest area after.

This prefectureGunma-Saitama-Yamanashi-Shizuoka-Aichi-Gifu-Toyama-NiigataAnd 8 prefectures, and the number of adjacent prefectures is 8, which is the largest among 47 prefectures.[Annotation 1]..However, although it is connected to these prefectures by land, transportation between them is not always easy.For example, the length of the border between Saitama Prefecture and the prefecture is only about 10 kilometers, and Kawakami Village Road No. 192 Azusayama Line[Annotation 2]You can only go back and forth directly.In addition, although it is in contact with Toyama Prefecture by land, the Northern Alps of 3,000 meters class is blocked, it is topographically steep, and it is very deep in the mountains, so it is an air route.Kanden Tunnel Electric BusIt is only possible to come and go by private vehicle, and ordinary people cannot come and go by private vehicle.Another prefectural border where vehicles cannot come and go is the prefectural border between Gunma and Fukushima.Also, due to topographical problems, etc.IidaAnd Shizuoka PrefectureShizuoka City,MatsumotoShimosuwa Town,Otaki VillageOkuwaThere are many cities, towns and villages that are land-based but cannot come and go.

The reason why it is topographically difficult to cross the prefectural border is that Nagano Prefecture is not a mountainous terrain with highlands occupying the central part, but rather the northwestern prefectural border.Hida Mountains, Southeastern prefectural borderAkaishi MountainsHigh altitude, some basins betweenInatani,Matsumoto basin,Saku Basin,Nagano BasinEtc.), which is a region centered on.The mountains near the prefectural border are also called "Japanese roofs," and are lined with high mountains at an altitude of 2,000 to 3,000 meters.However, the central part of Nagano Prefecture is not flat, and it is a steep and complicated terrain with many mountains inside.This is not unrelated to the fact that the vicinity of Nagano Prefecture is close to the plate boundary between the North American Plate and the Eurasian Plate, other than the fact that the Japanese archipelago is a new orogenic belt.In addition, it traverses HonshuItoigawa Shizuoka Structural Line(Itoigawa Line) runs north and south under the prefecture, and the Tertiary layer is distributed on the east side of the Itoigawa Line.Along the Itoigawa lineLake SuwaFromCentral structure lineIs running south.Because of this,Zenkoji earthquakeI have experienced many earthquakes.In addition, there are multiple active volcanoes in Nagano Prefecture.

Natural geographyIn the field of, near Nagano prefectureChubu region OfCentral highlandsClassified as.Although there are some inland prefectures with low rainfall in Honshu, Honshu is sandwiched between the Sea of ​​Japan and the Pacific Ocean, and there is sufficient precipitation to maintain the river in combination with the steep topography of Nagano Prefecture. , There are many water sources in the prefecture.There are many large and small rivers in the prefecture, and there are many terrains where each river has eroded the mountains.Has a basin in Nagano prefectureFirst-class riverAs for the Shinano River system, Tenryu River system, Kiso River system, Hime River system,Yahagi RiverWater systemFuji RiverWater systemSekigawaWater systemTone RiverThere is a water system.There are watersheds in the Pacific Ocean and the Sea of ​​Japan in the prefecture.For exampleTenryu River(Nanshin and Lake Suwa are water sources and pass through Inaya),Kiso River(Chuo Shinkin) goes south and pours into the Pacific Ocean.Also, for exampleChikuma River(Toshin, Kitashin),Saikawa(Nakanobu) merges in Nagano City and moves northward, crossing the prefectural borderShinano RiverChange the name and pour into the Sea of ​​Japan.Himekawa(Chuo Shinkin) is also flowing to the Sea of ​​Japan.

  • Escape from dam declaration
  • Nagano prefecture designation of origin management system(System summary
    See internal link for details
  • Rename concept
    The concept that Tanaka in the governor's era renamed "Nagano Prefecture" to "Shinshu Prefecture". Especially since it is often called "Shinshu" in terms of tourism, it was said to have an effect on the tourism industry. The root of this is that there is still a sense of confrontation between Nagano City and Matsumoto City. Initially it appeared on the newspaper, but it disappears without knowing if there was any actual movement.
  • Yamaguchi Murakoshi merger problem
    oldYamaguchi Village(CurrentGifuNakatsugawaYamaguchi area) was the opposite of the merger of Echi prefecture from the beginning of the merger notification. He continued to disagree with the approval of the merger council and said, "Yamaguchi should remain in Nagano." As a result, the merger was approved and the cross-border merger was realized, but Tanaka himself did not bend his will to the end.
    The conflict with the Yamaguchi-Murakoshi prefectural merger caused a conflict with the Yamaguchi-mura villagers, the village office, the village council, and the prefectural council, which led to the start of the successor governor, Murai Prefectural Government, on the tailwind of the “anti-Tanaka school”.

While there is a view that Tanaka prefectural government is self-righteous and dictatorship, the evils of Nagano prefectural government up to that point (for example, the LDP, which is the majority of prefectural council, ignores the opinions of minority groups and promotes overdevelopment). There is also a tendency to evaluate in that it has defeated, and the pros and cons are divided.

Hitoshi Murai Prefectural Government
  • Declaration of Tanaka prefectural government complete liquidation
    2006Defeated Tanaka in the governor election (18)Murai HitoshiContinued to criticize Tanaka's political stance as "a dictator" since the election.[Annotation 4], After winningComplete denial and complete liquidation of all Tanaka policiesDeclared to do. What Murai had clearly stated was the abolition of the Governor's Office on the 1st floor of the prefectural office and the cancellation of the declaration of dam removal, which Tanaka moved to the first floor of the prefectural office to "aim for an open prefectural government."
  • Expulsion of "Dam Commissioner"
  • Dissolution of investigation committee suspected of uncertain use of money in the Winter Olympics
    1998Dissolve the Uncertain Money Research Committee of the Winter Olympics held in (10) on the grounds that it is not constructive to expose the crime of a specific individual or a specific group. The investigative committee plans to investigate the causes of financial deterioration and third-sector railways in the future, which has hindered the discovery of possible administrative cohesion. This is one case that highlights that the prefectural government opened by Tanaka is being closed.
  • linearChuo ShinkansenRoute formulation problem
    While the adoption of "C route" that penetrates the Southern Alps is considered to be influential, "Because it is a large prefecture, it may be two or three (Linear prefecture stations). There must be a station north of route B." It doesn't make sense," he called the argument, "reminiscent of Gada Hikitetsu." After that, in response to growing demand for the realization of the C route in the Iida Shimo Ina region,2010(22) In May 5, for the first time, a resolution was adopted that did not specify the adoption of route B. This issue was settled on May 2011, 5, when the successor, Governor Abe, announced that it was appropriate to adopt the Southern Alps Route.

Compared to Tanaka prefectural government, Murai prefectural government has been criticized for being “closed prefectural government” and “retrogression of prefectural government,” while at the same time avoiding conflicts with parliament and prefectural officials (most prefectural governors across the country are doing this. There is also a tendency to evaluate (the so-called “all ruling party system”), and the pros and cons are divided like Tanaka prefectural government.

Morio Abe Prefectural Government
  • Shinshu type business sorting
    Abe, the current governor2009(21) Based on the experience involved in business sorting as Deputy Secretary General of the Cabinet Office Administrative Reform Council, discussions will be held on the occasion of public disclosure of streamlining prefectural businesses and sharing of roles with national and municipal governments. Sorting"2011(平成23年)1月15日から16日の2日間にわたって実施した。これは県知事選挙での政権公約でもあった。取り扱われた計29件の事業のうち、インターネットを活用した生涯学習情報提供システム事業、信州「食」の魅力向上事業の一部、交通安全啓発活動事業、総合型地域スポーツクラブ育成支援事業の4件が「不要」と判定され、残す25件のうち全体の約7割となる21件が「要改善」と判定された[21].
  • Problems associated with the construction of the Linear Chuo Shinkansen
    Of the 795 million cubic meters of residual soil that will be generated due to the construction of the Linear Chuo Shinkansen, the destination of 350 million cubic meters has not been decided as of September 2019, and Governor Abe has been accepting information without setting a deadline. In addition, the temporary storage space until the place of utilization is decided is not sufficient at this moment, and we are accepting candidate sites. We are dealing with noise complaints from heavy machinery during the construction of the Linear Chuo Shinkansen and the construction of the remaining soil storage site.
    Governor Abe was also distressed by the large-scale running water of the Oi River system that occurred in the Shizuoka Prefectural Industrial Zone, and requested JR Tokai to conserve water resources. On the other hand, regarding the Shizuoka Governor's opposition to the construction start, Governor Abe said, "I'm forcing the residents to put up with it. I would like them to open it until 2027," he said. I am taking it.

Nagano Prefecture was formerly known as an “educational prefecture” because it was enthusiastic about education, but the image of Nagano Prefecture as an “educational prefecture” gradually faded as the Japanese education system shifted to deviation-valued education.

2002(14) Under the Tanaka prefectural government, a class of 30 students in public elementary schools was promoted.2005(17), a complete 1-person class spanning the 4th grade of elementary school 4st to 30th grade was realized for the first time in Japan at the full cost of the prefecture. In addition, the 5th and 6th grade elementary schools are held jointly with municipalities.

Regarding long-term holidays, some schools also offer "cold holidays" due to the climate of Nagano Prefecture,Winter vacation,Summer VacationDue to short short-term holidays, the number of holidays is smaller than in other prefectures, and the number of school days is increased accordingly.

The official name of the prefectural high school in Nagano Prefecture is “Nagano Prefecture ○○ High School” according to Article 39 of the High School Establishment Ordinance (December 12, 28, Nagano Prefecture Ordinance No. 64), and “Nagano PrefectureStandDo not use “prefectural” names such as “○ Senior High School”. this isHokkaido,MiyagiIs similar to. It is retroactive when the "Prefectural Ordinance No. 1920" was issued in 38 to remove the character "Ritsu" from the name of the old prefectural school.[32], In the case of Nagano prefectureSchool reformAt that time, even union and municipal high schools were not distinguished from prefectural high schools, and there were cases where they called themselves "Nagano Prefecture XX High School", and municipal and union high schools were gradually transferred to prefectural governments. There is a history.

Out of the four-year college students, the rate of going to a university in the prefecture was 1987% in 8.0 (nationwide worst 2)[33] However, since the 1990s, four-year colleges have opened one after another, and in 2013 16.4% (nationwide worst 5)[34] Has improved.

Cable TV

The number of cable TV stations in Nagano prefecture is higher than the average of all prefectures in Japan, and the number of subscribers exceeds half of all households in the prefecture.[37], There are more than 20 stations. It is considered that this has developed because there are many mountains in the prefecture and there are many difficult-to-view areas.

However, in the early days of cable television, the number of stations was small.Therefore, in addition to the purpose of eliminating difficult-to-view areas, each major cable TV station in the prefecture has retransmitted the Nagano prefecture commercial broadcasting station for the purpose of correcting the information gap inside and outside the prefecture.Key station(In some parts of the Shimoina areaResidents' General Administration Bureau) Re-transmission (so-calledRebroadcast outside the area) Was carried out.This out-of-area rebroadcast continued for a long time after the opening of four commercial broadcasters in the prefecture and the correction of the digital divide.2011 OfDigital terrestrial broadcastingDue to the complete transition, basically, except for TV Tokyo, in response to the policy that digital broadcasting will stop re-broadcasting outside the area2014May 7It was abolished with.

Prefectural character

Shinshu people are generally proud, but at worst they are exclusive and have a lot of bias.In addition, many people are serious, sincere, and original, and are said to like theory.[38].

Dispositions that vary by region

Since Shinshu is long and expansive in the north and south, there is a difference in temperament depending on the area, such as the more it takes root toward the north.[38].

Introverted and closed-minded and will not show heart, but has a very strong sense of responsibility[38].


It's the most rational in the prefecture, and never stops arguing until it makes sense. There are many hot-blooded people who show emotions and emotions, and they are generally poor at socializing and do not hurt people. Only Shinshu has the temperament of unity[38].


  • Matsumoto/Azumi area

Rough, uncompromising, impatient and arguing. He is an emotionalist and his theory is thorough. It is exclusive and can harm others, but it is sensitive and lacks tenacity.[38].

  • Kiso area

Sincere, unsuspecting and will not hurt each other. Patience and well-preserving old traditions[38].


Generally moderate and progressive. There is unevenness in interpersonal feelings, and it is unlikely to show trust feelings once or twice, and easy compromises are not allowed. Also, if you don't fit your heartstrings, you often turn to the other side.[38].

  • Suwa area

It is rational and has a strong scientific and scientific aspect. There is a strong sense of responsibility[39].. Once decided, I dare to go on a steep road[40].

  • Iida/Ina area
