HistoryEdit

  • Inagi as a modern municipality was founded on April 1, 1889 as Inagi Village in what was then Minamitama District, Kanagawa Prefecture, from the merger of 6 pre-Meiji period villages with the establishment of the municipalities system.
  • The district was transferred to the administrative control of Tokyo Metropolis on April 1, 1893.
  • On April 1, 1957, Inagi Village was reclassified as Inagi Town.
  • On November 1, 1971, Inagi Town was reclassified as Inagi City, dissolving Minamitama District. Inagi with Tama was the last town within the former Minamitama District.
