From the Meiji period through into the start of the Shōwa period (1868-1930), Okaya was one of Japan's largest producers of export-quality silk, thanks to the introduction of a new silk-reeling machine from overseas.
After the second world war, Okaya established itself as a city of precision machinery, focusing on the manufacturing of products such as watches and cameras.
