In the olden days, paddy rice cultivation began early in Fukakusa in the Kyoto basin, and Fushimi Inari Taisha, the head office of Inari Shrine, was founded by Mr. Hata, a migrant family, until Hideyoshi Toyotomi died here during the Azuchi-Momoyama period. In the meantime, Fushimi Castle and Daimyo Mansion Group will be formed in Momoyama as a major political city, and Fushimi, a castle town centered on major sources, will be formed in the lowlands along the Yodo River extending to the west.

In the early days of the Tokugawa Shogunate, the first Ginza was placed under Fushimi Castle, and the shogunate from Ieyasu Tokugawa to Iemitsu III was also held at Fushimi Castle, which was the political base of the Shogunate. Even after the abandonment of Fushimi Castle, Fushimi Bugyo was placed and prospered as an important port town (Fushimi Port) and post town (Fushimi-juku) of Yodogawa Water Transport. Until the early Showa era, it was a separate city independent of Kyoto.

While it is a commercial base that inherits the tradition of the castle town, it has the character of a commuter town to the city center of Kyoto and the direction of Osaka.
