The history of Ichinoe Sakaigawa

Ichinoe Sakaigawa River was named because it has flown on the boarders between Higasi Ichinoe and Nishi Ichinoe Village. (Sakaigawa means the river lay on the boarder.) The areas' names 'Higashi Ichinoe' and 'Nishi Ichinoe' was recorded on the book 'Kasai Mikuriya Chumon' published in 1398. Ichinoe Sakaigawa River is a natural river, after Nakaibori Canal was completed it connected to the canal in the middle of Edo period. The river was not only for irrigation but also for transportation. At that time, villagers lived in Higashi Ichinoe, Nishi Ichinoe, Shinbori, Shishibone and Ichinoe Shinden organized a union to clean the river. When the urbanization had rapidly improved in 1950's, sewage from residents drained into it and the water of the river was polluted. After drains was built in this area, the role as the drainage canal had finished, and it came back to as the water park.
