ⓘ Kyoto 3rd district (1928–42)

Kyōto 3rd district was a multi-member constituency of the House of Representatives in the Imperial Diet of Japan. Between 1928 and 1942 it elected three representatives by single non-transferable vote. It covered Northwestern parts of Kyōto, namely the Amata, Ikaruga, Kaya, Yosa, Naka, Takeno and Kumano counties. The district was then predominantly rural, but the Minseitō could win the district by two seats to one in the election of 1930 and in the immediate prewar elections of 1936 and 1937 when the Diet had already lost most of its influence to the military- and aristocracy-led "national unity" cabinets. In the wartime election of 1942, non-Yokusankai candidate Hitoshi Ashida received more than 15.000 votes and defended his seat by a 1.500 vote margin against fourth-ranking Yokusankai candidate Sanichirō Mizushima.

After 1946 counties, this area became part of the limited Kyoto vote in the entire district.
