Sunpu[edit]

In point of fact, I'm not particularly opposed to the idea of having Sunpu remain a separate article, but I thought I could bring some attention to the issue by adding these merge tags.

  1. If we don't merge, or, I suppose even if we do, the section on Sunpu, and the overall section on Shizuoka's history need expansion badly.
  2. Heian-kyō, Heijo-kyō, Naniwa, do not have separate articles. But then, Edo does, although it's really short.
  3. If we don't merge, we need to figure out what to do with old names of existing cities, in terms of categories. Does it fit under "Category:Cities of Japan"? It doesn't really fit under "Dissolved municipalities" or any of those, as it's only been renamed and changed and grown, not really dissolved.

Thank you. LordAmeth 19:46, 8 December 2006 (UTC)

  • Merge Sunpu and Shizuoka, Shizuoka. Articles on cities typically have history sections. There's little reason for Shizuoka to have an article on part of its history, while earlier and later history is in the article on the city. Fg2 10:05, 11 December 2006 (UTC)
    • If the history section were to become really substantial, we could of course eventually have an article on the history of the city. Fg2 10:23, 11 December 2006 (UTC)

Conflicting area figures[edit]

The infobox and body text give slightly different figures for the area of Shizuoka, 1388 and 1373 square kilometres respectively. Can anyone resolve this? papageno (talk) 10:08, 21 December 2007 (UTC) Does this not affect the population density figures too? papageno (talk) 10:16, 21 December 2007 (UTC)

I've resolved it. The area changed as a result of the merger with Kanbara, Shizuoka. The area was updated in one place but not the other. I've gotten updated population figures from a Shizuoka web page and recalculated the population density, putting the numbers both in the box and in the body text.

Article Title[edit]

According to the MOS (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/MOS:JAPAN#Place_names), designated cities such as Shizuoka should be written in the form [[{city-name}]] only and not [[{city-name}, {prefecture-name}]]. Should the title of this article be changed from Shizuoka, Shizuoka to just Shizuoka? 76.209.140.172 (talk) 14:47, 7 February 2010 (UTC)

  • Niigata, Chiba and Saitama haven't been changed. It says in the guidelines "...unless disambiguation from another city or prefecture is necessary." Shizuoka City needs to be disambiguated from Shizuoka Prefecture, doesn't it?--Acidtoyman (talk) 09:55, 14 February 2011 (UTC)

Picture from Toroiseki[edit]

It's a very minor thing that probably doesn't make a difference, but the picture of the "Reconstructed building at the Toro archeological site" is old---the entire site has been knocked down, terraformed and rebuilt. If I wasn't such a terrible photographer, I'd put up a new photo myself. Acidtoyman (talk) 00:45, 28 March 2011 (UTC)
