Website Hatsukaichi City

Hatsukaichi (廿日市市 Hatsukaichi-shi?) is a city of some 120,000 people located in Hiroshima Prefecture, Japan. The name derives from a market traditionally held on the 20th of each month with hatsuka (廿日) meaning "20th day" and ichi (市) translating to "market". The market continues to this day on a small scale featuring fresh, locally grown vegetables and foodstuffs.

Following the absorption of the nearby towns of Ōno and Miyajima on November 3, 2005 (as of February 2010), Hatsukaichi has a population density of 235 persons per km². The total land area stands at 489.36 km².
