History of Hirado[]

Hirado has been a port of call for ships between the Asian mainland and Japan since the Nara period. During the Kamakura and Muromachi periods, the local Matsuura clan held the rights to trade with Korea and with Sung Dynasty China. During the Sengoku and early Edo periods, Hirado's role as a center of foreign trade increased, especially vis-a-vis Ming Dynasty China and the Dutch East India Company (VOC). The Portuguese arrived in 1550; and the English and Dutch initially reached Japan at the beginning of the 17th century.

The first step in the profitable Dutch-Japanese trading relationship was the Shogun's grant of a trading pass (handelspas) in 1609 At its maximum extent, the Dutch trading center covered the whole area of present-day Sakikata Park In 1637 and in 1639, stone warehouses were constructed, and the Dutch builders incorporated these dates into the stonework. However, the Tokugawa shogunate disapproved of the use of any Christian Era year dates, and therefore demanded the immediate destruction of these two structures. This failure to comply with strict sakoku practices was then used as one of the Shogunate's rationales for forcing the Dutch traders to abandon Hirado for the more constricting confines of Dejima, a small artificial island in the present-day city of Nagasaki. The last VOC Opperhoofd or Kapitan at Hirado and the first one at Dejima was François Caron, who oversaw the transfer in 1641 However, modern research indicated that this incident might actually have been an excuse for the Shogunate to take the Dutch trade away from the Hirado clan The stone warehouse from 1639 that was torn down has been reconstructed in its original form in 2011

During the Edo period, Hirado was the seat of the Hirado Domain. Hirado Castle is today an historical and architectural landmark.

The island was the namesake of IJN cruiser Hirado.

The modern city was founded on January 1, 1955. The city expanded by merging on October 1, 2005, with the neighboring towns of Tabira, Ikitsuki, and the village of Ōshima. The local economy is dominated by agriculture, fishing and food processing.

Sanyo is a constitutional monarchy where the power of the Emperor is very limited. As a ceremonial figurehead, he is defined by the constitution as "the symbol of the state and of the unity the people." Power is held chiefly by the Prime Minister and other elected members of the Diet, while sovereignty is vested in the Sanyonese people.Sanyo's legislative organ is the Imperial Diet, a bicameral parliament. The Diet consists of a House of Representatives, elected by popular vote every four years or when dissolved, and a House of House of Peers, whose popularly elected members serve six-year terms. The Diet is dominated by the Blossom Party and the Unity party. The Prime Minister is the head of government and is appointed by the Emperor after being designated by the Diet from among its members. The Prime Minister is the head of the Cabinet, and he appoints and dismisses the Ministers of State. Although the Prime Minister is formally appointed by the Emperor, the Constitution of Sanyo explicitly requires the Emperor to appoint whoever is designated by the Diet.

==Military ==

Sanyo's military (the Imperial Sanyonese Armed Forces) is restricted by the Constitution of Sanyo, which renounces Sanyos right to declare war or use military force in intermicronational disputes. Accordingly the Imperial Armed Forces is a usual military that has never fired shots outside Sanyo. It is governed by the Ministry of Defense, and primarily consists of the Imperial Army
