History of Tokushima

The Tokushima Castle was constructed in 1587 under the orders of feudal lord named Hachisuka lemasa. This family maintained control of the castle town until 1889.

In 1889, the general establishments of Japan took on great changes as cities began to evolve into municipals. Once this had taken place the city began practicing under an official government.

The 1920’s were filled with significant changes to the city including the mergers of several surrounding cities, villages, and towns. This addition nearly doubled the cities population and brought many more foreigners to the area.
