This rich history can be seen from the remains of palaces and ancient civilization, and by burial mounds dating from between the 2nd and 6th centuries scattered all around the city.
In the middle ages, SAKURAI was a borough of shinto shrines and Buddhist temples, where numerous cultural and trading activities took place.
Later, it was used as a stop-over by travelers and it is now known as the city of the temples.
