The origin of the name "Kagoshima" comes from the wilddeerThere are various theories such as the fact that many children (Kago) lived there, and many sailors (Kako) lived there, and that it was derived from the word kag, which means a volcano.[22]Furthermore, there is a theory that it came from a myth, and it is still uncertain which is correct. However, "kago" is an old word meaning cliff, and the four sides of Sakurajima were cliffs, so the island name was changed to Kagoshima (Kuroshima), and that was the opposite bank.ShrineName(Kagoshima Shrine), and evenKagoshima DistrictAscountyThe theory that it has expanded to the name is influential.

Until recently, speaking of "towns" in and around Kagoshima City was "PlanetariumAs you can see, the Tenmonkan district in the city center was an absolute downtown area. This is because Kagoshima City is that time distanceNorthern KyushuIt was hard to be affected byLand priceIs also more expensive than a city of similar sizeRoadside storeThe reason for this is that the company's advance was slow.

However, it was triggered by the partial opening of the Kyushu ShinkansenKagoshima Chuo StationCommercial areas other than the Tenmonkan area have developed due to the increase in large-scale suburban stores accompanying the integrated large-scale development of the surrounding areas and the relaxation of the designation for urban planning. To the northern Kyushu by opening the Kyushu ShinkansenStraw effectFor the time being, it is limited, but competition in the area with Kagoshima Chuo Station area and large suburban stores is intensifying.

Tenmonkan area

The largest downtown area in Kagoshima prefecture. Each company has a branch office in the Astronomical Museum area (including its surrounding area) that has jurisdiction over the southern Kyushu area, and also has a central function of the southern Kyushu area.[36][37].. Especially in the food and drink areaSennichou Town-Yamanoguchi TownIs the largest city of the same population and one of the best night towns in the country.
The place name "Tenmonkan" is a common name for the entire area,Shimazu family25s headShimazu ShigegoIs derived from the alias of the astronomical observatory "Mitsukikan" that was built here.
The outline and features of the town are single roof typearcadeAround the main street "Tenmonkan Train Street" where is installed, relatively narrow full-width arcades intersect like a labyrinth, and color paved to narrow alleys, and the area is small and medium-sized. ofMulti-tenant buildingIt is a crowded area, and is a downtown area suitable for walking. The problem is that compared to cities of the same size, there are few large-scale commercial facilities and tenant buildings tend to be delayed in terms of time, so it may be a little late for luxury brand regular retail stores to open, and there is also a possibility of passing trains. The main street is almost complete with the underground construction of the electric wire and the laying of street lights.Cultural streetIt can be said that the streets and alleys such as are under development. If these issues are steadily improved in the future, it can be expected that the attractiveness of the downtown area will be further enhanced.
The current situation is that the pedestrian traffic in the Astronomical and Izuro areas dropped sharply by 1998% from 2006 to 8, at the end of 45.1, due to the intensifying competition between areas in the business area. The lights of the movie went out (revived in April 2006), and a long-established hotel (Iwasaki Hotel Xavier 2010), which was the core of the city,DismantlingVacant lotAnd was one of the nuclear storesMitsukoshi Kagoshima storeWas to withdraw. As a successor store to the Mitsukoshi Kagoshima store, a complex commercial facility in April 2010Maruya GardensEfforts are underway to revive the Astronomical Museum, such as the opening of. The vacant store ratio rose to 2011% in 9.9, but has improved to 2012% in 6.6.
In addition, a report compiled by the City and Regional Development Bureau of the Ministry of Land, Infrastructure, Transport and Tourism in 2005 (17), a study on the ideal way of urban development for central city regeneration[38]Then, Kagoshima City and former Shizuoka City are listed as good examples.
