Abstract: Japan closed itself to international trade from the 17^<th> century to the mid-19^<th> century during the Edo period, known as the Sakoku. After the closure, industries dispersed from western coastal cities to inland areas in western and eastern Japan. This paper investigates how the Sakoku may have aff ected industrial locations within Japan by applying a footloose entrepreneur type geography model to an economy with agricultural raw materials in a continuous space setting. The simulations based on this model show that agglomeration of industries such as silk fabric production in western coastal cities no longer become sustainable after the closure, and relocates to inland places forming new cities.
