About Kanoya City :
Kanoya, city, southeastern Kagoshima prefecture southern Kyushu, Japan. It is situated in the central part of the Ōsumi Peninsula, with the western part of the city facing Kagoshima Bay. The built-up area of the city lies mainly in a low-lying river valley that rises to mountainous terrain to the north and south. Kanoya developed rapidly with the establishment of an airbase of the Imperial Japanese Navy in 1936. The base was the launch site for hundreds of Japanese Kamikaze air attacks against Allied warships in the final months of World War II. After the war, the base was taken over by the Japanese Maritime Self-Defense Force. The city retains its rural character, however, producing sweet potatoes and cereals as well as alcohol and starch on a small scale. Kanoya is the most populous city in Japan without any connection to railway services, after the abolition of the Ōsumi Line in 1987.
