Heian period

At the beginning of the 10th century, the counties were divided and reorganized nationwide in order to average the size (population, economic power) of each county.In the Fukushima Bon area, Date-gun was divided from Shinobu-gun.Date-gun is born here for the first time.There were eight towns in Shinobu-gun, of which Kokura-go (FukushimaSouth,Omori RiverIn the southAbukuma RiverWest), Akigo (Fukushima city center, north of Omori River)MatsukawaSouth of Abukuma River (west of Abukuma River), Minekoshi Township (around Nobuoyama, north of Matsukawa, south of Surikami River, west of Abukuma River), Date Township (southern Fukushima City, east of Abukuma River) The southern part of Date-gun remains as Nobuo-gun, Date-go (northern part of the Fukushima basin, north of the Abukuma River and west of the Abukuma River), Shizuribe-go (main area of ​​Date City, northern part of the east of the Abukuma River), and Mt.

The year after the Battle of Sekigahara, Kagekatsu UesugiTokugawa IeyasuThe counties in Aizu and central Nakadori were confiscated from 120 million stones.Okitama(Nagai-gun), Nobuo-gun, and Date-gun have reached 30 stones and entered the Edo period.

Edo Period

Mr. Uesugi in Date District in the early Edo periodYonezawa DomainFukushima of the Yonezawa Domainmagistrate(Nobuo DateCounty) Became under the control of. Even after the change from 120 million stones to 30 stones, many of the vassals remained, and the Yonezawa domain suffered serious financial difficulties, and Nitta development was actively carried out.In the northern part of Date DistrictNishine damWith the completion of, we have achieved a dramatic increase in production.after that,1664Due to the inheritance problem (Kanbun 4th year), Nobuo-gun and Date-gun were summoned by the Yonezawa Domain, Yonezawa Domain became 15 stones, and Shinobu-gun and Date-gun became Tenryo (directly controlled by the Shogunate).

1679,HondaFukushima Domain15 stones are established, but Mr. Honda1682It is transferred to Tenryo again.Continue1683ToMatsudairaYanagawa Domain3 stones are established.With the establishment of the Yanagawa domain, the continuous rule of the Shinobu plain (Date-gun, Nobuo-gun) came to an end, and until the Meiji Restoration, both Date-gun and Nobuo-gun were village-based, Yanagawa domain, Fukushima domain, Tenryo, the land of other feudal lords, and the place of custody are confused.桑 折 藩(Koori Town, Date District)Unskilled clan(Date CityTsukidatemachi) Was also placed.

For example, the entire Yanagawa area is not as simple as the Yanagawa domain, and there are heavenly territories within the Yanagawa domain, and even though Isazawa (Yanagawamachi, Date City) is under the jurisdiction of Koori Jinya, Kawauchi between Kuwaori is under the jurisdiction of Kawamata Jinya, Hanzawa and Narita (both in Koori-cho, Date-gun) are the landings of the Fukushima domain, and there is a landing site of the Nihonmatsu domain between the Fukushima domain and the Yanagawa domain. rice field.In addition, the Yanagawa domain itself was abolished,Mr. MatsumaeIt became the Yanagawa domain, and became the excursion of the Aizu domain and the Hira domain.

On the other hand, throughout the Edo period, in the Date District areaSericultureDeveloped, especially Yanagawa became a nationally known silk moth capital.In the middle of the Edo period, more than half of the national silkworm production was produced in the Shinda region.At the end of the Tokugawa shogunate, we completed breeding and warm-growing technologies, and by inventing a silk moth meter (sericulture thermometer), we realized scientific silkworm sericulture ... stable production of high-quality raw silk.Due to this booming economy, the improvement of academics at the private level and the enhancement of entertainment facilities and inn facilities for welcoming silkworm seed and raw silk buyers from all over the country have been promoted, and these have become the soil and popular culture has blossomed.

After the Meiji era

The booming economy of the sericulture industry from the end of the Edo period continued until the Meiji era, but due to the subsequent sericulture sericulture industry, agriculture is now shifting to fruit trees.Especially, peaches, apples and persimmons are cultivated.Invented especially in the Taisho era in IsawaAmpo persimmonIs famous as a special product of this region.

On the other hand, since ancient times, Shinobu-gun and Date-gun have formed an inseparable living area as the same Fukushima basin.FukushimaIs in Fukushima prefecturePrefectural office locationDue to the rapid urbanization, the town in the Date District area became a satellite city of Fukushima City.In particularHigh growth periodLater, this tendency was remarkable, and many people went to Fukushima City for commuting to work or school.

Background of the merger of 5 towns in Date District

Initially in Date DistrictKuwaori Town,Kunimi Town,Kawamata Town,Iino TownConsidering a county-wide merger by 9 towns, including2000(12) In October, the Date Region Wide Area Administration Promotion Study Group was held.2003In July (15), the Date Region Voluntary Merger Council was established for discussions.However, Kawamata Town and Iino TownFukushimaWithdrew from consideration of merger with, and in December 2003, the Date 15 Towns Merger Council was established by 12 towns.

The statutory merger council solicited local residents for the name of the new city after the merger.HokkaidoToDate CityTherefore, when making an open call for participants, please refer to the selection criteria and application guidelines.Date CityWas excluded.However, when the open call for participants was actually closed, many "Date City" were also sent.

As a result of the discussion, the new city name and office location review subcommittee ranked first in the open call for participants, "Date City", "Momohana City", "Abukuma City", and "New Date City". , And "Date Mirai City" were the final candidates. There are many applications for "Date", the name has a long history and has been popular for a long time, Okinawa PrefectureMiyakojima CityIs the existing city name due to the merger ofMiyako CityDue to the movement to use, it was decided to leave the decision on the handling of "Date City" to the council.

Try to avoid giving the name of "city" the same name as an existing city.Ministry of Home Affairs(CurrentMinistry of Internal Affairs and Communications) (Notice of Self-Government Secretary No. 45, dated March 3, 12).As a result of inquiring the merger council to the Ministry of Internal Affairs and Communications regarding this notification, the answer was that "there is no problem if there is no objection from the existing city."After that, when I confirmed the intention of Date City, Hokkaido, although I could not get a formal opinion, I got a reply that "I am not in a position to object" to the merger council's own judgment to decide the name of the new city. rice field.Due to these changes in the situation, the council selected "Date City" from the five candidates decided by open recruitment, and changed it to "Date City" in kanji, and finally named the new city.Date CityI decided to.

Many people disliked the Hiragana city name and applied for another city name because of the open recruitment condition of "excluding" Date City "", and there are criticisms about the process of presenting this souvenir.

after that,2004In August 16, Mayor Koori suddenly announced that he would withdraw from the merger council.Since it withdrew in November of the same year, the remaining 8 towns decided to establish the Date 11 Towns Merger Council and continue the merger talks.

In the remaining 5 towns2005(17) The Date 1 Towns Merger Council was newly established in January, and the merger agreement was signed in March. After the decisions of the 5 Towns Council and the Fukushima Prefectural Council and the notification of the Minister of Internal Affairs and Communications,2006(18) "Date City, Fukushima Prefecture" will be born on January 1st.
