Tsukuba is a planned city that came into existence as a result of a plan that received approval from the Japanese cabinet in 1973. On November 30, 1987, Oho Town, Toyosato Town, Yatabe Town, and Sakura Village merged to become Tsukuba City. Tsukuba City, also known as Tsukuba Science City, became the 20th new city in Ibaraki Prefecture and the 655th new city in Japan. Tsukuba Town merged with Tsukuba City the following year, and on November 1, 2002, Kukizaki Town completed the process.
