Sakai’s Outline

Sakai’s Outline

In the ancient era, one of the world’s largest tombs Nintoku-tenno-ryo Kofun (ancient tumulus) and other Mozu Kofungun, (tumuli group) were constructed, and in the medieval era Sakai prospered through overseas trade as an autonomous city surrounded by a moat. After the war, the waterfront industrial complex and a large residential area called Semboku New Town were constructed and make the city what you see today. After merging with Mihara Town in February 2005, it became an ordinance-designated city in 2006.
