As a regional bank after the war, I wondered why it was founded in Ikeda City.It seems that Kobayashi was also named as an advisor at the time of its founding due to the relationship with Ichizo Kobayashi, and later became a subsidiary of the Hankyu and Toho Groups. Later, it merged with Senshu Bank and became Senshu Ikeda Bank. Ikeda Bank head office. Ikeda City feels like Hankyu’s hometown, and you can’t talk about it without Ichizo Kobayashi.
