Miura is a city located in central Kanagawa Prefecture, Japan.As of April 1, 2017, the city had an estimated population of 44,132, with 17,473 households, and a population density of 1,400 persons per km2. The total area is 32.05 km2.HistoryThe area of modern Miura has been inhabited since prehistoric times. Archaeologists have uncovered numerous remains from the Japanese paleolithic, Jōmon and Yayoi periods. From the late Heian period through the end of the Sengoku period, the area was ruled by the Miura clan. During the Edo period, it was tenryō territory ruled directly by the Tokugawa shogunate.After the Meiji Restoration, the town of Misaki within Miura District, Kanagawa was created on April 1, 1889. The town was electrified in 1913, but did not have running water until 1934.The area was badly shaken during the 1923 Great Kantō earthquake, which had its epicenter in Sagami Bay just a few kilometers offshore from the city. The whole geographical area around the city was lifted by about 10 meters by tectonic movement, before subsiding to its original level during the next few days. No major tsunami was recorded.
