- ❹Historical Heritage of Eastern Nagoya City
Until 1907, when the Port of Nagoya was completed by reclaiming land off the coast of Atsuta, Atsuta was located at the southern end of the Nagoya plateau, which is shaped like elephant nose. At the northern end of the plateau, Nagoya Castle was built in the early Edo period(1603-1867).In ancient times,Atsuta was called Hourai (the place where hermit lives) Island because it looked like an island where hermit lived when seen from a ship offshore.Nagoya Castle was also called Housa Castle (the castle to the left of Hourai Island) because of its location to the left of Atsuta.The shallow waters off the coast of Atsuta did not allow large ships to enter the port.On the beach of Atsuta, there was Miya-juku, the largest post station on the Tokaido Highway, and it was crowded with travelers.Travelers traveled by ferryboat, known as the Shichiri no Watashi, to Kuwana post station on various routes at high and low tides.
In the Meiji era (1868-1912), the port of Atsuta was established, but as usual, large ships could not enter the port. Cargo was carried in and out from Yokkaichi Port, which faced the open sea of Ise Bay, to the coast of Atsuta, where it was reloaded onto small boats and brought to Atsuta Port.In the middle of the Meiji era (1868-1912), the momentum for the construction of a new port grew.Dredging technology had developed by the middle of the Meiji era (1868-1912), and it was decided to extend the Horikawa River, and construction work began in 1898.Nagoya Port was opened in 1907.The first phase of construction of the Nagoya Port was completed in 1910.With the opening of the port, up to ten 3,000-ton class ships could berth at the port, allowing goods from Japan and abroad to arrive directly in Nagoya. After the completion of the first phase of construction, the second phase of construction was started to allow 6000-ton class ships to continue to enter the port.In 1921, Nagoya Port's foreign trade exceeded that of Yokkaichi Port.In 1925, the first 10,000-ton class steamer arrived at the port.At the beginning of the Showa era (1926-1989), the piers were renovated to accommodate 38 ships, including 10,000-ton steamers, and construction of the Showa, Funami, and Shiomi piers was underway.Although the southern area of Nagoya city was severely damaged by the Isewan Typhoon, the construction of the pier continued.Construction has also begun on the Kaneshiro Pier, Kiba-Kaneoka Pier, Tobishima Pier, and the Pier in the "southern area" where key industries are concentrated.At the end of the Showa era (1926-1989), the construction of the Yatomi and Nabeta piers began and was completed in the Heisei era (1989-1991).Port Island is an artificial island that was built to receive sediment from the dredging of Nagoya Port.Currently, the future use of this island is being discussed.

The environment surrounding Nagoya Port has been changing rapidly in recent years.The number of ships entering the port is getting larger, and the volume of cargo handled is increasing every year.How we respond to such changes in the environment is becoming more and more important.There are three main types of cargo handled at Nagoya Port.These are containerized cargo, completed cars , and bulk cargo.It is necessary to handle them in a functional manner at each pier.In particular, container cargo is being handled mainly at Tobishima Pier and Nabeta Pier, which are located offshore, as ships are getting larger and larger.Completed cars are shipped from the Kinjo pier and Shinpo pier.There are bases for importing raw materials and energy in Chita City and Tokai City, located in the southern part of Nagoya Port, so we handle a lot of bulk cargo there.For example, container terminals have been managed by public organizations such as the national government and management associations, but recently they have begun to utilize private sector power.Initiatives to promote adopting IT , such as automated terminals, are run by the private sector.Nagoya Port Terminal Co.Ltd. has been established at the Port of Nagoya, and it is now taking the initiative in the management and operation of container terminals.
In September 2015, the port plan was revised. This plan is a master plan for port development targeted for the late 2020s. The goal is to increase container and logistics capabilities. On the other hand, there is a plan to build a pier at the Kinjo pier where large cruise ships can dock.We are also aiming to strengthen the exchange function of Kinjo Pier.
