History[edit]

During the Edo period, the area of modern Aisai was controlled by the Yokoi clan, retainers of the Owari Tokugawa of Nagoya. During the Meiji period, the area was organized into several villages under Kasai District and Kaito District, Aichi Prefecture, which later became Ama District, Aichi in the Taisho period.

The modern city of Aisai was created through the merger on April 1, 2005 of Saya and Saori Towns and Hachikai and Tatsuta Villages.
