|《Welcome to Itami - Birthplace of Sake and rich cultural town》
Thank you very much for your accessing on this page. Our city Itami is located in the middle of Hanshin area(between Osaka and Kobe) .
I am anxious to have a great deal of accessing from all over the world in order to make Itami more familiar as a town of sky gateway in western Japan.
Itami has been known as a town of Osaka International Airport as well as Itami Air Force Base in 50's, however when the new Kansai International Airport started its operation in 1994 and then most of the international lines at Osaka Airport were shifted to the new airport.
Itami is also known as the birthplace of "SAKE" (rice wine) and famous collection of "HAIKU" (traditional Japanese poetry). And also it is very famous that the understock of famous flowering cherry trees which had planted along the Potomac River in Washington D.C. were shipped from our city in 1910.
Furthermore, our city offers attraction to visitors by its rose garden of over 10,000 rose trees, a pond famous to bird watchers, and an insect museum. Itami has consciously preserved the nature as well as historical assets.
Why don't you come to Itami and enjoy strolling around the greenery parks.
