History

In 1959 the townships of Fujiidera-cho and Domyoji-cho merged to create Fujiidera-Domyoji-cho. A year later, the town was renamed Misasagi-cho. The present day city of Fujiidera-shi was created November 1, 1966.

Though recently demolished, Fujiidera Stadium was owned and used by the now renamed Kintetsu Buffaloes, a Japanese baseball team with a large fan base in Osaka.

Transport

Fujiidera is served by the Kintetsu Minami-Osaka Line and Kintetsu Domyoji Line, with three railway stations located within the city. Fujiidera Station is the largest, located close to the City Hall, and surrounded by an area of retail shops; the other two are Hajinosato and Domyoji.

Geography

Two major rivers flow through the city; the Yamatogawa (the larger) and the Ishikawa (the smaller, a tributary of the Yamatogawa). Sections of both river banks are maintained for recreation. The rivers are bounded by high levees that protect low lying areas from flooding.
