Fuchu was once the location of the kokufu (provincial capital) of ancient Musashino Province; one can find many historical sites here, such as the Kokufu Ruins and ancient burial mounds. Fuchu flourished during the Edo Period as a waystation for people to come and go along the Koshu Kaido Road, an important path that connected Edo to Kai Province (modern-day Yamanashi Prefecture).
