Sakai CityOsaka Prefecture

Sakai City has a rich cultural heritage associated with prehistoric times as illustrated by the Mozu Necropolis, including the Nintoku Mausoleum. In the medieval ages, the city acquired autonomy, quite rare at that time,to become center for external trade as well as sophisticated culture such as the tea ceremony.
As one of the leading cities in the Kansai region, Sakai is now striving with its enterprising spirit to become a new city suited to the coming century while at the same time paying special attention to the traditions accumulated in its brilliant history.
