Kanazawa prospered again for a long time as landing place of marine transportation to Kamakura as point of traffic. Kanazawa was known as the scenic ground from ancient times so that we were represented in "Kanazawahakkei" of Hiroshige Utagawa. In addition, we are loved, and the figure is introduced from celebrities many as villa place by many pictures, poetry, songs in now after it was the Meiji era.
It was admitted into Isogo-ku, Yokohama-shi in 1936, and we did share ward from Isogo Ward for 23 years, and, after the postwar confusion period, Kanazawa Ward was born. Afterwards, large-scale housing land development came to be performed at the same time from the late 30s while Kanto Gakuin University, Yokohama City University (the outside site) being set up, and deepening flavor as university town and developed as bedroom town.
In 1988, Kanazawa frontage reclaiming work of about 6.6 million square m which started construction for 46 years is completed and accomplishes the development as seaside industrial area. In 1988, the only beach opens in Marine Park (the outside site) in the city. In 1989, Kanazawa Zoo (the outside site) and new transportation system Kanazawa Seaside Line (the outside site) started a business, and Yokohama, Hakkeijima Sea Paradise opened in 1993, too.
Kanazawa Ward has both two nature of the sea and mountain and is endowed with cultural and historic inheritances of famous place, historic site having history from the Kamakura era with old thing.
We aim at nature and town planning with contact with harmony, people and people with town so that the sea and green are felt with the goal of "sea and green harmony town Kanazawa to play" in future by inhabitants of a ward.
