Hino City Overview
The city has three general landscapes: slopes, a plain, and lowlands. In addition, the Tama River flows in the northern area, while the Asa River flows in the central area of the city, making the landscape rich in diversity.
On the right bank of the Asa River Basin (south side) is Tama Hills. This is a vast hilly region that extends as far as the Miura Peninsula of Kanagawa Prefecture, and is the green framework of Hino. Although there are many homes in this area, there are also many trees and springs.
On the left bank of the Asa River (the north side) is a plateau. From the plateau, there are two levels of coastal terrace. The land on the plateau is mainly residential, and is also a prominent industrial area within the Tama region.
The lowlands along the Asa River and Tama River are used for both residences and agriculture. Rice paddies, which have become rare, stretch across the land, and canals bring water to the fields. This area stretches for 120 kilometers and is the framework of agriculture in Hino. Although less than in times past, there is urban farming being conducted in areas such as Tokoji (near Shinmachi), Kawabe-Horinouchi, Arai, Toyoda, Nishi-Hirayama, and Kurasawa (near Mogusa).
