Historically the area of Minami Ward has played an important role. Being on the only side of the city which is not bound by mountains, the area has long been the gateway to Kyoto.

The Katsura and the Kamo Rivers both course through Minami, a ward which is predominately a working class area with a number of large factories and industrial complexes.
