city, Kagawa ken (prefecture), Shikoku, Japan, facing the Inland Sea. The city has been a centre of salt manufacture since the early 17th century. Part of the salt fields were reclaimed for industrial use after World War II, and Sakaide became heavily industrialized. Besides salt, its products include chemicals, petrochemicals, and machinery. A large shipyard is attached to the city's busy commercial port. Mount Shiramine, 4 miles (7 km) to the east, is crowned with the mausoleum of the emperor Sutoku (1119–64). Pop. (2005) 57,266.
