The Port of Sakai-Semboku (Port Code:JPSKU) was established by combining Sakai Port, which has a long history, and Semboku Port, which was developed in recent years. It is located along Osaka Bay, spanning the three cities of Sakai, Izumiotsu and Takaishi. The Port covers about 9,000 hectares, extending 14 kilometers north to south (the Yamato River in the north and the Osaka-Wakayama prefectural border in the south), and stretches roughly 10 kilometers out to sea.
From around the 15th century to the 17th century (Muromachi Era to Azuchi-Momoyama Era), by taking advantage of its natural harbor, Sakai City played an important role in supplying goods to the central consumer markets of Kyoto, Osaka and Nara; Sakai Port prospered as Japan’s major port in trade with China during the Ming Dynasty. Later, with the development of the Sakai-Semboku Coastal Industrial Zone, whose land reclamation began in the latter half of 1950s, Sakai Port and Semboku Port experienced significant growth as modern industrial ports.
