12.Ichinomiya
Ichinomiya (一宮市 Ichinomiya-shi) after expansion in 2005 to include nearby Bisai and Kisogawa, it is the 4th largest city in the prefecture. Ichinomiya is historically a center for woolen textiles, and many aspects of textile production still flourish in the city, such as world-famous yarn manufacturer Eisaku Noro.

Introducing Sightseeing and popular place
1.Masumida Shrine - Ichinomiya means 'first shrine' (in the sense of most important) and Masumida was the principal shrine of Owari Province (now Aichi). The ornate shrine is surrounded by pleasant grounds, including a pool with carp and turtles.

2.138 tower park - 'Ichino-mi-ya' can be read as the number '138', and so the number crops up regularly in the local area. Ichinomiya Twin Arch 138 is the tallest arch-style tower in Asia, at (you guessed it) 138m tall

3.Tanabata Matsuri - Held from Thursday to Sunday of the last weekend in July, this is reputed to be one of the three biggest Tanabata festivals in Japan, and attracts up to 1.3 million visitors annually.
4.Bisai fireworks festival - held in August as part of Bisai summer festival, some 5000 fireworks (including some with blooms of up to 500m) are released on the banks of the Kiso river.

Ichinomiya has a number of traditional Japanese activities, particularly Martial Arts. There is an Aikido, Judo, Karate (Kyokushin style), Kendo, Kyūdō, and Shorinji Kempo club.
