It also contained the districts of 十軒町 Jikkencho and 船松町二丁目 Funamatsucho, second sub-district.
Samurai and townspeople lived here side by side.
The story of the 47 Ronin from Harima is famous.

At the beginning of the Meiji era, the Akashi Domain consisted of the town of Akashi and 144 villages. In July 1871 the feudal system of domains and provinces was abolished and Akashi Domain became Akashi Prefecture.
