From its strategic location in the Harima area, Kakogawa has thrived as a strategic point of east-west traffic since long ago. Saijo Tumuli, from which the oldest belt fittings in Japan were uncovered, have been designated a Historic Site of Japan. In the 7th century, the “Kako no Umaya” was set up as a relay post along the ancient Sanyo Highway, which later in Medieval times grew into an assemblage of inns and stables known as “Kakogawa-Juku”. Kakurinji shotoku, houses many national treasures and important cultural properties that tell people today about the romanticism of times passed.

Kakogawa is a strategic point of east-west traffic, blessed with wondrous natural surroundings. The invigorating and pristine landscape has molded a number of unique people throughout our history.
