Onomichi was incorporated as a city in 1169 to be a stronghold to export rice and other stuffs to overseas, mainly China.


In 1741, a town magistrate Kakuzaemon Hirayama renovated Onomichi port so that bigger vessels can enter the port.


This festival started in 1935 to praise his contribution and continued till today with a decade's suspension during wartime.
