From the Old Stone Age to the Present

Obu has many ruins, including the Kyoei remains, the oldest in the city and from which stone ware from the Old Stone Age was found, Koyasu Shrine remains from the latter half of the Yayoi Period, and Sosaku remains dating from the Kofun Period. At the Sosaku remains, you can learn about the daily life of people who lived in the Sakai River basin. During the warring states period, battles took place at the Ishigase River between the Oda and Imagawa clans and between the Mizuno and Matsudaira clans. There are many traces of those warring times, including Oiwake Castle, Yokone Castle and kubizuka (i.e. burial mounds for severed heads).
Seven villages joined together in the 39th year of the Meiji Era (A.D.1906) to form Obu Town, whose area was the same as the present city. In the September of the 45th year of Showa (A.D. 1970), the City of Obu was established as the 24th city in the prefecture. At the Obu History and Folklore Museum, a restored private house from the early Meiji Era is on exhibition, with life-size figures of a farming family making straw ropes and weaving. It also exhibits artefacts including cultural properties, relics from ancient sites and historical data, to help visitors learn the history of Obu while finding out how people of that time lived.
