is a city located in Aichi Prefecture, Japan. The city is often called Owari-Ichinomiya to avoid confusion with another Ichinomiya (now part of the city of Toyokawa). The pre-expansion city was once part of now-defunct Nakashima District until September 1, 1921.

Ichinomiya literally means "the first shrine" of the province. In case of this city, it was Masumida Shrine of Owari Province.

On April 1, 2005, the city was expanded by absorbing the city of Bisai, and the town of Kisogawa (from Haguri District) which would make the city the fourth largest in Aichi Prefecture, only behind (by largest to third largest) Nagoya, Toyota, and Toyohashi. Following this merger, the city now has a population of at least 380,000 and the city has scheduled to become a Core City sometime in the future.
