Nonoichi was the first post town on Hokkoku Road from Kanazawa Castle to Kyoto. Post horses used to transport commodities were stationed in Nonoichi. There is a document stating that Nonoichi post town had 87 horses in 1666. In June 1854, a horse market was opened at Nunoichi Shrine as a part of the Kaga Domain's policy to promote new industries and secure good horses for the domain.
Nonoichi development was related to horses.
