Kanagawa 2nd district was a constituency of the House of Representatives in the Imperial Diet of Japan in the elections of 1920 and 1924. It was located in Kanagawa prefecture and consisted of Yokosuka city. Its only representative was Koizumi Matajirō who later went on to become Minister of Communication in the 2nd Wakatsuki cabinet. Koizumi, his son-in-law Junya, his grandson Junichirō and his great-grandson Shinjirō have continued to represent Yokosuka in the House of Representatives with only short interruptions to the day.

In previous elections, Yokosuka, which was transferred from the city to the Miura district in the city in 1907 was formed a part of the gun-BU constituency along all counties gun Tokyo, the only city Yokohama-Shi originally formed a separate electoral district on its own. With the introduction of universal male suffrage and a return to the widespread use of the single non-transferable vote SNTV in 1925 Yokosuka became part of the new 2nd district, which included most of the Eastern Kanagawa Prefecture, and elected four representatives from SNTV.
