Prior to the arrival of Tokugawa Ieyasu, it was known as Kōjimura (糀村). The area developed as townspeople settled along the Kōshū Kaidō. In 1878 Kōjimachi became a ward in the city of Tokyo. It was the forerunner of Chiyoda which is now a special ward. Kōjimachi was the birthplace of Japanese general and prime minister Hideki Tojo, who was hanged for war crimes after World War II.
