Cities Spring Summer Autumn Winter

Ishinomaki City has been an old port. It has flourished as a rice-shipping port since Kawamura Magobei dug channels by Date Masamune order in the 1620s. The construction of a new port in the kama district on western mouth of the river began in 1960. In 1964 , it was designated as a new industrial city of the Sendai bay area along with a major port designation. At the same time , it was improved as a port hub for northern Miyagi. Also , The businesses of fertilizer, steel, and ship making were established, and wood chips and fertilizer cargo were mainly handled there. In 1981 The offshore development of the Hibarino region was approved as a new port area to handle increasing loads of cargo. Through the integration with the Sendai Shiogama Port in 2012, the Ishinomaki Port changed into the international hub port of Sendai Shiogama Ishinomaki. More and more progress is anticipated .
