    The prefecture area is largely divided into the eastern hilly region (east of Sakaigawa), the central lowland (Sakaigawa-Sagamigawa), and the western mountainous region (west of Sagamigawa) by the Sakaigawa and Sagamigawa that flow southward in the central part.coastalThe length of the line is about 430 km and it is very varied.

However, due to the lack of flat land, in Yokosuka, urbanization progressed from an early stage to the top of the hill, and in other areas as well.High economic growthSince the latter half of the term, residential land development has been carried out through large-scale topographical changes. In the south of Yokosuka City, in the south of the valley of the Heisaku River, the Kinugasa Fault, the Kitatake Fault, and the Takeyama Fault extend west-northwest-southeast.Active faultAre in parallel.

    Central area: Sagami Plain

    In the central part of the prefectureSagami RiverA stair-shaped flat land spread in the middle and lower reachesSagami PlainCall. In a broad sense, it may be part of the Kanto Plain, but it is separated by the Tama Hills and is considered to be an independent sedimentary basin due to its geological structure. The Sagami Plain formed by the sedimentation of the Sagami River is an old sedimentary surfaceSagamino PlateauIt is divided into the Sagamihara Plateau and the Sagamigawa Lowland, which is the current surface of deposition (the Sagamigawa Lowland is sometimes called the "Sagami Plain").

    The Sagamino Plateau is a diluvial plateau that occupies most of the area between the left bank of the Sagami River and the Sakai River, and the stair-like topography that is noticeable along the Sagami River on the west side was formed after the last interglacial period.River terraceIs. In the northern part of Sagamihara city (former city area), it is divided into three large flat surfaces, but the Takaza plateau, which is located at the southwestern end of the plateau and has a different geological origin, and the sedimentary surface of an older age are slightly hills. In particular, there are more than a dozen steps of flat surfaces such as the remaining Zama Hills. On the other hand, there is a diluvial plateau called Nakatsu plateau on the right bank of the Sagami River.Aikawa TownIt extends from the eastern part to the northern part of Atsugi City, but its scale is smaller than that of the Sagamino Plateau.

Summers are hot and there are many tropical nights. In addition, because of the high temperature, there is less snowfall due to low pressure on the south coast than inland.
    • Shonan-Miura Peninsula - ShonanArea andMiura PeninsulaHas a temperate maritime climate and is unlikely to frost. The summer is not too hot, and the climate is mild and mild throughout the year.

Despite being overpopulated, Ebina is the only Amedas temperature observation point in this region.

However, since it gets cold on a clear morning, there are more winter days than in the Keihin coastal area. Also, summer is relatively easy to spend. Annual precipitation is also higher than in the east.

    The early modern period

    Edo PeriodToOdawara DomainHowever, there are many flags in this area, and Miura Anjin (William Adams)ButTokugawa IeyasuからMiura PeninsulaIt is famous that he worshiped the territory.Since the middle of the Edo period, the Odawara domain and other branches of the domain have been based in the current prefecture.Ogino Yamanaka DomainAnd Musashi Kanazawa Domain (Mutsuura Domain), and a clan based outside the prefecture (Karasuyama Domain,Sakura clan,Nishidaira DomainA lot of enclaves were placed.

    In the early Edo period, Tokugawa Ieyasu liked falconry, and the Kosugi Goten (currentlyKawasaki CityNakahara), Kanagawa Goten (横 浜 市), Fujisawa Goten (CurrentFujisawa),Nakahara palace(CurrentHiratsuka) And other general residences were set up. The use of these palace is the third generalTokugawa IemitsuIt was carried out until the generation ofTokugawa YoshimuneIt was revived in the generation.

    19st centuryFrom the beginning of the foreign ship (so-called "Black ship]) began to appear in the waters around Japan, and has sought to open Japan. In some countries, there was a force to force “opening and opening of ports”. The security of the coastal area became a political issue, and the Aizu clan in Kanagawa Prefectureculture7 years(1810/) Started construction of Daiba and Jinya in Kannonzaki, Nishiuraga and Misaki. Aizu clan officers were stationed in these camps and conducted military training. In an emergency, a system was established to levy fishing and luggage vessels from coastal villages. After that, the arrival of the black ship did not stop,BunseiNew Year (1818/) In May, a British ship1822/) Is a British whaling ship off Susaki (Chiba),Tempo8 years(1837/In June, the American merchant ship Morrison arrived off Uraga. Security was strengthened by the arrival of these black ships one after another, and it was decided to widely mobilize the people of the coastal villages in an emergency, and the name owner and village officials would share the security officers. The area became to be at the forefront of defense.Hiroka3 years(1846/) In May, when the US Bittle fleet arrived in Edo Bay, a total of more than 5 ships and more than 3000 agricultural and fishermen were mobilized and mobilized for defense.[20].


    Edo Shogunate TheAnsei5 years(1858/)ofUS-Japan Amity and Trade Treaty,Japan-UK Amity Trade Treaty(Ansei Five-Country Treaty), we decided to open "Kanagawa" in the port, but due to foreigners' occupancy in a busy placeArrogantConcerned about troubles such as turmoil, the opening of the port was opened in Yokohama Village (near the current Kanagawa Prefectural Office) on the opposite bank, which is easy to control access to and away from the road. This was a treaty violation, but the Shogunate urged Yokohama to be included in Kanagawa.[21].. Initially, the Western powers claimed to have violated the treaty, but the diplomatic debate will soon end. This is because Kanagawa-juku has declined as Yokohama's harbor facilities and other facilities have improved, and Yokohama has begun to develop.

    Ansei 6 years (1859/), Yokohama and the neighboring areas (Kanagawa-juku,Hodogaya-juku,Honmoku, Negishi, etc.)Kanagawa magistrateThe Kanagawa magistrate's office is located in Kurashiki-gun, Musashikuni.Tobe Village(Yomigaoka, Nishi-ku, Yokohama,Kanagawa Prefectural Library(Near),KannaiThe current Kanagawa Prefectural Office is located (Nippon Odori, Naka-ku, Yokohama) at the Kanagawa Transport Office (YokohamaCustomsThe predecessor) was placed. The Kanagawa magistrate was in charge of the administration of the area around Yokohama, as well as the administration of the walking area for foreign residents, which was designated as "from Yokohama to Shirikata" in the treaty.
