The history of Yuasa
Person has begun to live in Yuasa now for approximately 5,000 years.
We are said to be in those days even if we were accompanied by the name of "yuasa" because the sea gets to the inside than now, and water (yu) is shallow, and it opened even if we threw from old name "onkasa" (floor).
 
The place name of Yuasa comes up for history in the Heian era

When it is the Heian era, the place name of "Yuasa" comes up for historical documents with influential powerful family of land, achievement of Yuasa. Yuasa was regarded as descendant of descendant Hidesato Fujiwara of Kamatari Fujiwara and seemed to come to introduce ourselves as Yuasa from the place name of the residence.

 
In important accommodations of faith Kumano prayer to Kumano Miyama

Because Kumano Miyama collected faith of people with the prosperity of Buddhism, Yuasa became important accommodations of Kumano prayer. Craze for faith of people to pilgrimage to the Shrines of Kumano seemed to increase from higher classes to general public widely, and person came and went flourishingly from the capital of Kyoto and untied traveling outfit in the ground of Yuasa.

It is called "Oji Corporation" when we pray in the middle of pilgrimage to the Shrines of Kumano, but kyubeisakiokoshaato remains in Saka River Oji Corporation, Bessho in Yoshikawa. In addition, we were maintained as highway for traffic of public employee and transportation of baggage letter of government business for Edo period, and Yuasa carried out role as "post-horse place".

 
The world of war

It was revolt of Heiji to have played an active part in history, and the Yuasa clan was respected as the staying in the locale family of Heike clan afterward.

Even if time changed, and it was the world of Genji, trust from the Kamakura Shogunate was thick and won fame for a long time as strong samurai group Yuasa party and hit the job of the Kyoto guard afterwards.

We held excellent water forces to north and south morning service charges and, in response to march of the Imperial Court (south morning) of Yoshino, played an active part distantly in Kyushu. Shipbuilding, watermanship of these water forces will found flower as the shipping trade later.

Yuasa party was really proud of power to north and south morning service charges for 300 years.

 
It is Yuasa group from Muromachi to the Edo era

Arida chief administrator place of Kishu feudal clan was put in Yuasa blessed with position and the topography again as port town of Kii water supply, and 23 villages were ruled as "Yuasa group", and, as post town of Kumano Highway, village headman was put in each village with village official one in group. It may be said that the history of Yuasa as administration center of the Arida district where taxation office or the Arida Promotion Bureau are put began at this time even today.

 
It is town of business and industry full of vigor from Edo to the Meiji era
Yuasa that was at important position in traffic gradually accomplishes development as commercial city. Even if what formed the nucleus says anything; soy sauce. Yuasa is with oldness that soy sauce which became world seasoning was born as product now. We were under the protection of Kishu feudal clan and developed and raised the name. Kinzanji-miso which led to soy sauce birth elsewhere, Kishu mandarin orange, fishing net were important industry.
Development of soy sauce promoted the shipping trade for transportation and development of various industrial products with soy sauce and produced business magnates. There is thing which a lot of merchant's families having fishing ground, store in Edo and various places throughout Kanto make a foray into Shimousa among them, and began soy sauce brewing, and it is in the origin of soy sauce industry of Choshi.
Yuasa became populous commercial city next to castle town Wakayama by the late Tokugawa period.
 
From village to town
Yuasa-mura, Bessho-mura, Aoki-mura, Yamadamura was merged, and Tamura, Suhara-mura, Yoshikawa-mura was merged with "Yuasa-mura", and, after the Meiji Restoration, it was to "Ta home Kawamura".
Furthermore, Yuasa-mura became town, and it was about 1896 (Meiji 29) that Yuasa-cho was born.
It was merged with Ta home Kawamura after this in 1956 (Showa 31) after World War II and became existing Yuasa-cho.
