2.9
Takaishi is a city located in Osaka Prefecture, Japan.As of October 2016, the city has an estimated population of 56,583 and a population density of 5,000 persons per km². The total area is 11.35 km².HistoryThe city was founded on November 1, 1966. Takaishi established a sister city relationship with Lomita, California in October 1981. It once experienced a severe financial crisis in the late 1990s and the then mayor attempted to merge the city with Sakai. However, the merger became the major campaign issue in the following mayoral election, and was voted down when the incumbent mayor lost in his bid for re-election. The city still remains independent.GeographyTakaishi occupies a position on the shore of Osaka Bay. Adjacent cities are Sakai, Izumiōtsu and Izumi. About half of the city area lies on reclaimed land, upon which stands a large petrochemical refinery. Takaishi's fire department boasts the largest firetruck truck in Japan as a precaution against possible major fires at the refinery.TransportationRail Nankai Electric Railway Nankai Main Line: Hagoromo Station, Takaishi Station Nankai Takashinohama Line: Kyarabashi Station, Takashinohama Station
