Creation of a town that is comfortable to live in through the participation and cooperation of its residents

The Miyamae Ward is home to the “Yogoji Temple” featuring “Yakushi Nyorai Sanson-zo” statue, which has been designated as an important cultural property by the national government alongside important historic relics such as the “Higashi-Takane Ruins”.
Since the extension of Tokyu Den-en-toshi Line from Mizonokuchi Station to Nagatsuta Station in 1966 as well as the opening of the Tomei Kawasaki Interchange on the Tomei Expressway in 1968, Miyamae has experienced rapid growth through both an increase in population and urbanization as a residential suburb.
At the same time, the ward, blessed with greenery including Sugao Ryokuchi Park and the Tonmori Yato area in Hatsuyama, attaches great importance in the contact with nature.
“Kappark Saginuma Park”, housing Frontown Saginuma, a futsal facility operated by Kawasaki Frontale, and “Saginuma Contact Park”, with a lawn square and a little stream, is a symbolic zone of the ward that is loved and used by many people. The ward has concluded a “Town Creation Cooperation Agreement” with Frontown Saginuma, to cooperate in a wide variety of areas including sports, health, and education, effectively promoting the development of the ward.
While maximizing the advantages of both new cultural developments and old traditions, the ward strives to promote the creation of local communities as well as develop a heartwarming region.
