Moroyama, as it is now, was established in 1955 when the old Moroyama Town and Kawakado Village consolidated, taking a large step toward the area's rapid growth from a farm village to an urban town. Road paving and housing developments in the early 1960s brought urbanization, population growth and change to areas previously devoted to mulberry fields. This new urban environment led to changes in the industrial structure including decreases in the agricultural population and an increase in the manufacturing and service industries. Moroyama became a commuter town.
Moroyama town has four stations.
- JR East Hachikō Line:
- Tōbu Ogose Line:
- Kamakita Lake
- Izumo-Iwai-Shinto shrine
