Kamaishi is a city located on the Sanriku rias coast in Iwate Prefecture, in the Tohoku region of northern Japan. As of September 2015, the city had an estimated population of 35,308 and a population density of 80.2 persons per km2. The total area was 441.43sqkm.GeographyThe spectacular, rugged coast of Kamaishi is entirely within the Sanriku Fukkō National Park. There are four large bays, Ōtsuchi Bay in the north, Ryōishi Bay, Kamaishi Bay and Tōni Bay in the south. Each is separated by large, rocky, pine-covered peninsulas which jut out into the Pacific Ocean. Immediately the rocky cliffs develop into hills rising to 400or along the coast and 1200or farther inland.The highest point in Kamaishi is Goyō-zan in the southwest at 1,341.3 meters in elevation. Most of the land is mountainous, allowing for little agriculture. The main rivers are the Kasshi-gawa River which empties into Kamaishi Bay and the Unosumai-gawa River which empties into Ōtsuchi Bay. Both have small floodplains that allow for development and agriculture.Neighboring municipalitiesIwate PrefectureŌtsuchi, Iwate to the northTōno, Iwate to the westSumita, Iwate to the westŌfunato, Iwate to the south
