Ichinomiya Restaurant Guide

Ichinomiya, located in the northwestern part of Aichi prefecture, has long been known as a producer of textiles.It was the center of striped cotton and silk fabric production during the Edo period. From the Meiji era and onward, it rapidly developed into the heart of the industrialized wool industry.A new "Ichinomiya City", with a population of 370,000, was born in April 2005 after merging with the city of Bisai and the town of Kisogawa.One point of interest is Masumida Shrine, where citizens of Ichinomiya have long worshipped.The honden (main shrine) and watadono (wide covered corridors) are Registered Tangible Cultural Properties of Japan.There is also the Twin Arch 138, an observation tower with two beautiful arches 138 meters tall.The Ichinomiya Tanabata Festival is held in July every year and is the city's biggest summer event.With brilliantly extravagant decorations, Ichinomiya's Tanabata Festival is one of the three great Tanabata festivals of Japan. Ichinomiya holds its own alongside Sendai and Hiratsuka's Tanabata Festivals.The city becomes lively during the festival with many visitors who come from both within and outside the prefecture.
