After the war, Hirakata SME housing complex (currently Hirakata corporate housing complex), HirakataReady-made clothesHousing complex (currently Hirakata men's clothing housing complex),Hirakata Furniture ComplexIndustrial parks such as Hirakata supported the economic growth of Hirakata.Since the locations were not consolidated in one place when attracting companies, these corporate complexes are scattered throughout the city, although they are organized to some extent.

However, due to changes in the industrial structure and the progress of residential land, these offices are increasingly relocating to the outside of the city in recent years.A pioneer of modern industry in HirakataKurashiki spinningHirakata Factory (formerly Japan Knitting) opened in 1996,CHOYAThe Hirakata Factory (formerly Choya Shirt Factory) moved out of the city in 2004.Tsuda Science Hills (in addition to human resource development and entrepreneurship support, in order to revitalize local industriesKansai Science City Himuro / Tsuda District) Is being attracted to companies, but it is difficult to say that sufficient results have been achieved.

In the first place, Hirakata City has the characteristic that "railway traffic is relatively close to the city center" and has been actively developing housing by taking advantage of the land since the bubble era.Since most of the workers living in these residential areas are commuters in the city center, the outflow of the daytime population to the city center was remarkable.More recently in 1997JR Tozai LineOpened and 2003Hirakata Station,Camphor stationKeihan Limited Express stop, Nakanoshima Line opened in 2008, etc.Keihin Main Line,Katamachi LineDue to service improvements such as speeding up the (Gakken Toshi Line) and enhancing the number of operating systems and lines, not only commuting needs but also commercial and tourism needs have become more urban-oriented, and even purchasers have flowed out to the city center (Straw effect).

TenwaIt is based on the noodle manufacturing technology that was handed down from Miwa Yamato during the year (1681-1683).It prospered as a side business during the off-season, mainly in Tsuda-mura, Katano-gun, where there is little cultivated land, and was produced at about 80 houses during the peak season.It had expanded its sales channels to Omi and Owari far away, but in recent years the aging of producers has become a problem, and as of 2003, only three houses have been left in the Tsuda area and one in the Hotani area. It was.At that time, it was not on the market due to limited shipments.After that, the number of producers continued to decline, and the last one that had inherited the tradition was closed in 2012, and the long-standing producers were cut off.Since then, it has been reported that local residents are working to pass on technology and production.[9]..At the Municipal Hirakata Yado Kagiya Museum, you can eat Kawachi somen for a fee only in the summer.[10].

In Tsuda, the monument of Masaemon Yamashita (later Masata), who contributed to the development of Kawachi somen, remains.

In Hirakata CityBed townDue to the change in population, the population increased rapidly from the 1950s to the 1970s.As a result, the shortage of elementary and junior high schools became more serious, and a large number of temporary prefabricated classrooms were created in elementary and junior high schools in various regions.New schools were established and expanded to accommodate the increasing number of children, and the shortage of classrooms was resolved in the 1980s.

The number of elementary school children peaked in the 1980s and began to decline, and the number of classes decreased as the birthrate gradually declined.The increase in vacant classrooms also became a problem, and schools were consolidated and abolished in 1999.However, taking advantage of the small number of people, it is expected that they will not be consolidated or abolished in the future. In 2004, the junior high school district will be made more flexible, and in the final year of elementary school, a survey of desired junior high school students will be conducted.

In addition, it has been active for a long time for the introduction of computer rooms in all municipal schools, English education by ALT, and small-group classes.

Furthermore, since 2008, air conditioning has been installed in all classrooms of elementary and junior high schools in Hirakata City, making it possible to secure a comfortable learning environment.In addition, all elementary schools have turned part of the schoolyard into a lawn under the name of a green carpet project so that children can play in the playground to their heart's content.This is also expected to have the effect of lowering the outside air temperature.

According to the National Achievement Survey, the average value of Hirakata City is higher than the national average and the average of Osaka Prefecture. So that we can develop more fulfilling classesElectronic blackboardHas been introduced, the summer holidays have been shortened by 6 days, and the winter holidays have been shifted by one day.

In addition, in connection with the fact that the Osaka prefectural historic site "Den Wani Tomb", which is said to be the grave of Dr. Wani who transmitted kanji to Japan, is located in the city, in XNUMX Since fiscal year, we have been conducting various initiatives such as holding a "memorable kanji one-character composition contest" (currently "a composition contest that conveys thoughts on the theme of kanji").

Koya.It is said that the monks of Kyoto heading for training on Mt. Koya, the aristocrats heading for worship, and eventually samurai, merchants, and even ordinary people walked toward Mt. Koya.Currently, it corresponds to National Highway No. 1 (Toga Pass-Deyashiki), Osaka Prefectural Road Hirakata Kono Neyagawa Line (Deyashiki-Matsuko), Osaka Prefectural Road Hirakata Tomita Hayashi Izumisano Line (Nasuzukuri-Nakano).The area around Deyashiki retains its former remnants.

The Yamane Highway is a highway that branches off from the Toga Pass to the Higashi-Koya Highway, passes through Tsuda, and reaches the private sector, and was used as a highway connecting the villages in the foothills.

In 1594Bunroku embankmentWhen the road was improved and used as a road, this road was used in the Edo period.Kyo KaidoHas been maintained.KyokaidoHigashi Koya KaidoInstead, it will be used as a main road between Keihan and will greatly contribute to the development of Hirakata.

The Kyokaido was developed as the Keihan Kokudo in 1932, and was called the (former) National Route 1 in 1966.Hirakata Bypass(National Highway 1) After opening, it continues to the present as Osaka Prefectural Road No. 13 Kyoto Moriguchi Line.Currently, the Hirakata Bypass (National Highway No. 1) runs through the city from Toga Pass, but traffic congestion is frequent due to the fact that the main intersections are not grade separations. Completed in 2010Daini Keihan RoadIt is expected that traffic congestion will be alleviated.

During the Edo period, water transportation using the Yodo River was also actively used along with the Kyokaido, and it prospered as a key point for boat transportation to and from the Yodo River.

Fushimi Port in Kyoto and OsakaHachikenyaShips of various sizes, including the Jukkokubune, which is a passenger ship that connects the two, came and went, and there were piers such as Hirakatahama, Kuzuhahama, Hinouehama, Nagisahama, and Isoshimahama.Hirakata beach is also called Tsuruya beach because there was a boat inn called Tsuruya, and it is said that it was an important dock used for public use.Approach the passing ships and sell rice cakes and sakeKurawanka boatIt was around this time that became a specialty.The situation is Siebold "Edo Sanfu Journey",Tokosha XNUMX"Tokaido Naka Knee Chestnut Hair"Hiroshige Utagawa (Hiroshige Ando)It is written in many travelogues, including "Kyoto Famous Views of the Sixty-Five Places, Yodogawa" and "Rokujuyoshu Famous Views of the Sixty-Year State, Kawachi Makikata Otokoyama".

Until the opening of the (former) Hirakata Bridge in 1930, ferryboats were the only means of transportation to and from the opposite bank of the Yodo River.It is connected to the opposite bank by Kuzuha (Takahama), Shimoshima (Uden), Maejima, Isoshima, Hirakata (Otsuka), and Exit (Mishimae). It is said that.

In the Meiji era, steam paddle steamers appeared and locksmith ura and Tsuruya beach were piers, but with the opening of railways, the development of automobiles, and the improvement of roads, land transportation was gradually replaced.

In recent years, a movement to revive the Yodo River's shipping has been promoted in order to secure transportation for tourism and emergencies. In November 2000, at the request of Hirakata City, the "Yodogawa River Transport Maintenance Promotion Council" was established with the participation of 11 cities and 9 town along the Yodo River in Osaka and Kyoto prefectures.

Regarding railways, the current Katamachi Line opened in 1898 and the Keihan Main Line opened in 1910, replacing the transportation of passenger goods between Keihan, which had been mainly carried by Yodogawa river transport.In addition, the Katamachi Line was also responsible for munitions transportation to the Army facilities (Kori Factory and Banno Explosives Storage) located in the city.After the war, it played an important role as a foot for commuting to work and school due to the rapid increase in population due to the conversion to a commuter town.Hirakatashi Station has the third largest number of passengers on the Keihan Main Line.Due to the geographical condition of being almost halfway between Kyoto and Osaka and the conversion to a Keihan limited express stop, Hirakatashi Station to KeihanKyobashi Station15 minutes by limited express (23 minutes by semi express), KeihanTambabashi StationThe fastest time was 18 minutes on the limited express train (26 minutes on the semi-express train). In 1929,Nobutaka Ikoma Electric RailwayAfterKeihan Katano LineOpened the route.Originally from Nara prefectureIkoma StationThe plan was to tie up to, but the plan was canceled without being extended.
