Inazawa is located in the coastal flatlands of far western Aichi Prefecture, bordering Gifu Prefecture on the west.
Inazawa is the location of the Nara period provincial capital and provincial temple of Owari Province. The Owari Onkunitama Jinja, an important Shinto shrine located within the borders of the present city, also dates from this period. During the Edo period, Inaba and Ozawa villages formed a post town on the Minoji, a kaidō connecting Miya-juku (Atsuta on the Tōkaidō to Tarui-juku (Mino Province) on the Nakasendō. During the Meiji period, the town of Inazawa was created. The area of the town was expanded in 1907 and 1955 through the annexation of neighboring villages, and on November 1, 1958, the Inazawa was elevated to city status.
