History[edit]

Kiyokawa Village was established on September 30, 1956 through the merger of former Susugaya and Miyagase villages. The completion of the Miyagase Dam in 1965 submerged much of former Miyagase Village, forcing the relocation of its inhabitants to other locations within Kiyokawa Village and neighboring Aikawa Town.

Transportation[edit]

Kiyokawa has no connections with the Japanese national highway or railway systems. Access is by Kanagawa Prefectural Routes 60, 64, 70 or 514.
