Shouldn't this be "Minoh"? WhisperToMe 22:28, 16 December 2005 (UTC)
I came to this discussion late, but this page should not have been moved. There are guidelines for municipality article naming at WP:MOS-JA#Place_names, and as Minoh is not a designated city (政令指定都市) the article title should be "Minoh, Osaka." As this is clearly stated in the MOS, I'm going to move it back. -Amake (talk) 23:36, 28 June 2010 (UTC)
Date of establishment
I have confirmed the date Minoh was established as a city (市) as December 1, 1956 (Showa 31). From the city ordinances:
I'm not an expert in legal Japanese, but I read that as saying that the town of Minoh was designated as a city on 12/1/56 by the governor of Osaka-fu pursuant to the Local Government Act.
