General Information About Tsuyama City

General Information About Tsuyama City

Tsuyama City is located in an inland basin at the foot of the Chugoku Mountains in northern Okayama Prefecture.

Since the establishment of Mimasaka province in 713, Tsuyama has flourished as its center. The first feudal lord, Mori Tadamasa, who ruled from 1603-1634, laid out the plans for Tsuyama as his castle town. These plans were subsequently realized by his successors, but the castle itself was completed in 1616.

Tsuyama is known as a "treasure house of historical fortune," for even today its layout faithfully reflects Lord Mori's original plans. Around the site of old Tsuyama castle old and new streets blend in harmony, and with the surrounding mountains and the Yoshii-gawa river, give Tsuyama its beautiful natural setting.

One could also call Tsuyama a city of music and welfare. Tsuyama is known for its annual performance of Beethoven's Ninth Symphony, the Tsuyama International Festival of Music. At the Culture Center, a regular concert schedule assures that the citizens of the city are never without music.

Since the completion of the Chugoku Highway in 1975, nine new industrial parks have been completed in Tsuyama City. Industrial expansion has been encouraged by the opening of the Seto Ohashi Bridge and the Okayama Airport.

With its rich cultural assets and rapidly advancing industry, Tsuyama continues to grow and develop as the leading inland city of the Chugoku district.
