History
Koriyama used to be barren and was a town for travelers with a population of merely 5,000 until the end of the Edo period (1603-1868).
Koriyama, having the inconvenience of water at that time, made the first step toward prosperity by undertaking the Asaka Canal Project (1879).
The reclamation of the Asaka Plains required 850,000 man-days and took three years to complete. It is said that as many as 2,000 workers from across the nation gathered in Koriyama, a small town with a population of only 5,000!!
Now Koriyama has developed into a city with a population of about 340,000, and become one of the leading cities in the Tohoku District.
