Noshiro (能代市) is a city located in Akita Prefecture, Japan. As of 31 December 2019, the city had an estimated population of 52,283. According to the Nihon Shoki and other ancient chronicles, Noshiro is where an expedition sent by the Yamato Court led by Abe no Hirafu landed in 658 AD with orders to force the local Emishi tribes into submission. Trade vessels from Balhae were calling at Noshiro Port as late as 771 AD. The area of present-day Noshiro was part of ancient Dewa Province, dominated by the Satake clan during the Edo period, who ruled Kubota Domain under the Tokugawa shogunate. The town of Nishirominato was established on 1 April 1889, with the establishment of the modern municipalities system.
