The Port was opened as a commercial port in 1863. In 1872 a navel defence headquarters was set up here and later the railroad was linked to the port. It wasn?t until 1886 that the first wharf was completed despite the port being in operation for around 100 years prior to that. When the Japanese occupied the area during 1895-1945 a 5 stage development plan was initiated. During World War II in 1939 the port was heavily bombed and almost all of the port facilities were destroyed.
