Because of the inland basin, the difference in temperature is remarkable and the summer is the best.temperatureThere are 30 to 70 days of midsummer days that reach over 80 degrees Celsius, while in winter there are about 50 days of winter when the minimum temperature is below zero. Annual rainfall is 2,500-3,000 mm.

Due to the large river and many tributaries in the basin, almost 100% fog occurs in the morning on a sunny day in winter.[Source required].. The frequency is such that it competes for the number of fog days in Japan every year, but this fog may cause speed restrictions on highways. Since the fog that occurs is hardly topographically discharged, it is not uncommon to remain near noon.

It rains a lot throughout the year, and the humidity does not become so low due to the effects of fog in winter as well as high humidity in summer.

Incumbent mayor

Successive mayors

ChiefThere are many ways to count the algebra of (successive), but here we will explain it while writing (a) and (b) separately. In the display column, two types are described under the names "a (a)" and "a (b)". The "algebra (a)" is an algebra based on the method of counting each appointment, and the "algebra (b)" is an algebra based on the method of not counting consecutive appointments by the same person. Hitoyoshi City uses the "dai (b)" method (other examples:Kyoto city mayors[1],Mayor of Ogaki City[2]), and many local governments use the “dai (a)” method (eg:Hachioji City,Hirosaki City successive mayors[3],Hamamatsu City successive mayors[4]), (a) and (b) are misunderstood if they are simply compared without recognizing the difference. It should be noted that there is also a method to count the same person 1 even if there is a return, but currently Hitoyoshi City does not apply.
