Hannan Port is designated as one of the Major Ports, situated near the center of the eastern shore of Osaka Bay, and has developed as one of the leading spinning industrial areas in Japan since the Meiji period. In 1966, when a lumber industrial complex was constructed, the port became a center for lumber industry. In recent years, the area has been attracting enterprises to its Chikiri Island Area and Hannan 4th district Region as a part of active promotion policy for the development of the port.
