ⓘ Kumamoto 2nd district

Kumamoto 2nd district is a current single-member electoral district for the House of Representatives, the lower house of the National Diet of Japan. It is located in Kumamoto and covers Western parts of the prefectural capital Kumamoto, the cities of Arao and Tamana and the Tamana county with its remaining four municipalities, the towns of Nagasu, Nankan, Nagomi and Gyokutō.

Until 1996 this area was a part of five members of the Kumamoto 1st quarter. Currently, this position in the 2nd quarter, liberal Democrat, Takeshi Noda, represented the pre-reform 1st quarter since 1972, when he succeeded his late father-in-law Takeo Noda.
