Government ordinance city

Hamamatsu is a government ordinance city with a population of about 800,000 and the number of businesses of about 37,000. It was ranked the happiest city among the government ordinance cities (2018).

One of the big advantage of being a government ordinance city is delegation of authorities and financial resources. Since a part of the authorities and financial resources are delegated by the prefectural government, it is possible to implement service provision and community development in the way more suitable for the actual circumstances for road improvement, city planning and education. In addition, a government ordinance city can issue the lottery. It is an important source of revenue to be used to improve the civil life, too.
