History of Inagi

Stonework done in the Stone Age has been found around the city hinting that the land was used at least 20,000 years ago. The special pieces found to represent this fact have been preserved properly and can be seen in a few of the many museums open to all.

During the 1600’s Inagi was established as a village containing over 14 smaller villages. Inagi was the center of the ruling and quickly became one of the greatest villages in Japan at that time.

In 1889, these smaller villages relinquished their names becoming only the Inagi village. Surrounding villages also merged into the Inagi village creating a much larger area of ruling.

In 1893, Inagi became a village of the Tokyo Prefecture as it began its great journey to becoming what it is today. The village began organizing itself to finally become a city of Tokyo in 1937.
