Izumisano city - Our hometown blessed with mountains, lands and sea.
The strategic point of land and sea passage connecting Namba and Kinokuni for a long time. "Rokusai-ichi" (markets opened 6 times per month) opened along the highway in the Middle Ages, vessels ran all over the country in the early modern times, Sano created wealthy merchants "Meshino and Karakane”, who appeared in the old novel "Nihon Eitai-gura (The Eternal Storehouse Of Japan)" written by Saikaku Ihara. Textile industry was flourished in Meiji period, Sano was developed as a central city of southern Senshu area. History and culture built and brought up with sweat, tears and wisdom of ancient people are retained in a variety of fields, such as buildings, paintings, crafts and literature in this town.
Nowadays Izumisano has purpose to become a new active town that is open to the world. We have the idea that a clue to activation of this town depends on whether many people realize again the identity of this town.
