ⓘ Tokyo 2nd district (1947–93)

Tokyo 2nd district was a constituency of the House of Representatives in the Diet of Japan. Between 1947 and 1993 it elected three, later five representatives by single non-transferable vote. It initially consisted of Shinagawa and Ōta in Eastern mainland Tokyo and, following their return from US military administration, Tokyos Izu and Ogasawara islands. Since the election of 1996, the area forms the new single-member 3rd district.

Prominent members of the 2nd district included the founder Shizue Katō, her husband, the activist of the labour Kanjū Katō, conservative environment and transport Minister Shintarō Ishihara and DSP President Keigo Ōuchi.
