The name of "Futami" derives from that the district faces two seas, the Sea of Japan and Uchiura Bay, which is a bay of the Pacific Ocean. Yakumo is the only municipality facing both the Sea of Japan and the Pacific Ocean.
- On October 1, 2005, the old town of Yakumo (from Yamakoshi District, Oshima Subprefecture) merged with the town of Kumaishi (from Nishi District, Hiyama Subprefecture) to create the new and expanded town of Yakumo. The former town of Kumaishi joined Oshima Subprefecture at the same time.
