ⓘ Kyoto 1st district (1947–93)

Kyōto 1st district was a constituency of the House of Representatives in the Diet of Japan. Between 1947 and 1993 it elected five Representatives by single non-transferable vote. It was located in Kyōto and consisted, as of 1993, of the cities of Kyōto citys wards of Sakyō, Higashiyama, Kamigyō, Kita, Nakagyō, Shimogyō, Minami and Yamashina. Today, the area is split between Kyōto 1st and 2nd single-member electoral districts.

Kyoto is a stronghold of the Japanese Communist party and the 1st quarter is one of the few in the country where the party did not nominate more than one candidate – successfully so in 1972 and 1979 elections, but in 1990 he lost both his candidates for votes is killing me. Faced with the problem of lack of support for the main parties in the 1970-ies, the LDP often put forward only two candidates in JSP only one candidate in Kyoto the 1st quarter.
