History

The area around present-day Moriyama-ku has been settled since the Japanese Paleolithic period, and was a coastal area during the Holocene glacial retreat. The remains of numerous kofun burial mounds have been discovered. By the Sengoku period, it was a contested border area of Owari province and the site of the Battle of Komaki and Nagakute.

In 1889, during the Meiji period, the area was organized into villages under Higashikasugai District, Aichi. In 1897, the area became home to the Imperial Japanese Army’s IJA 33rd Infantry Brigade under the command of the IJA 3rd Army headquartered in Nagoya. The region began to grow in population with the completion of the Japanese Government Railway’s line in 1900, and the Seto Electric Railway in 1905. Moriyama town was created on July 16, 1906 through the merger four villages, and was raised to city status on June 1, 1954. On February 15, 1963 the city was annexed by Nagoya metropolis, becoming Moryama-ku.
