HistoryEdit

The 16th century village Miyamoto, considered the birthplace of Miyamoto Musashi, is part of present-day Mimasaka.

The modern city of Mimasaka was founded on March 31, 2005 by the merger of the former town of Mimasaka, absorbing the towns of Aida, Ōhara and Sakutō, the village Higashiawakura (all from Aida District), and the town of Katsuta (from Katsuta District).
