HistoryEdit

During the Sengoku period, the Battle of Komaki and Nagakute was held in this vicinity. During the Edo period area of modern Nagakute was part of the holdings of Owari Domain. Nagakute Village was established within Aichi District on May 10, 1906 through the merger of the hamlets of Nagakute (different spelling as 長湫村), Kamigō and Yazako. Nagakute was elevated to town status on April 1, 1971. Expo 2005 was a major boost to the local economy, and led to the construction of the Linimo, a commercial linear motor train, to connect the area with the Nagoya metropolis. Nagakute was elevated to city status on January 4, 2012.
