Yokkaichi is a port city in Japan's Mie Prefecture (Kansai region, south-eastern Honshu Island), with population around 310,000. After 1868 (Meiji Revolution), the town became Mie Prefecture's capital. In 1872-1884, the seaport was developed and in 1899 designated International Port. The current-day seaport has capacity to handle large boxships, and is fitted with gantry cranes, open-air and covered stotage (warehouses).

Port's primary trade was shipping of seed oil, Banko ware (traditional Japanese pottery) and Ise tea (produced only in only 3 prefectures - Mie, Shizuoka and Kagoshima). Later to these items were added cotton, wool, glass, heavy equipment. The town received ints city status in 1897. In 1899, Port Yokkaichi was designated as open port, which allowed trading with USA and UK. Since 1939, the city developed a chemical industry after the Japanese Navy constructed a large refinery near the seaport. Later were built petrochemical and chemical plants.

During WW2 (1939-1945), Yokkaichi was one of the first bombed by USA Japanese cities. At the end of the war, in June 1945, 89 US bombers dropped around 11,000 incendiary bombs and destroyed over 1/3 of the city. Followed eight more air raids (until August 1945). Traditionally for Japan, Yokkaichi City was enlarged in 2005 via merger with the neighbouring, town Kusu.

City's current economy is based on manufacturing - Banko ware (porcelain), automobiles (Honda's Yokkaichi Factory constructing mini-vans), cotton textiles, chemicals, leaf tea, cement, computer parts (Toshiba Electronics). As tourist attractions, the city is best known for its annual festivals Amagasuka Ishidori, Great Yokkaichi and Matsubara Ishidori.
