Population: 7,261, 000 people, ranking 5/47 prefectures (2021)

Area: 3,797 km2

 

Geographical / Landscape description

This prefecture is part of the Greater Tokyo Area, and most of Saitama's cities can be described as suburbs of Tokyo, from which a large amount of residents commute each day.

Climate

Saitama has taken first place seven times for the last 10 years in the ranking of prefectures with the highest number of sunny days.

Recent history, culture

After World War II, as Tokyo expanded rapidly and modern transportation allowed longer commutes, the lack of available land in Tokyo led to the rapid development of Saitama Prefecture, whose population has nearly tripled since 1960. Most of the cities in the prefecture are closely connected to downtown Tokyo by metropolitan rail, and operate largely as residential and commercial suburbs of Tokyo.
