1 Kaizuka Jinaicho (Kaizuka City)
Kaizuka Jinaicho is one of the many autonomous cities that once existed in Japan. It developed around Kaizuka Gobo Gansenji Temple, which is an Important Cultural Property, and developed as a city in the Edo period. It still retains some of its traditional atmosphere. It was the scene of much conflict in the past, as outsiders tried to seize territories. However, the unity of the local residents was strong enough that this autonomous city was able to survive for a long time.
