The ward was founded on March 15, 1947 merging the old wards of Ōmori and Kamata.

Haneda Airport, now the main domestic airport for the Greater Tokyo Area, was first established as Haneda Airfield in 1931 in the town of Haneda, Ebara District of Tokyo Prefecture. In 1945, it became Haneda Army Air Base under the control of the United States Army. In the same year, the Occupation ordered the expansion of the airport, evicting people from the surroundings on 48 hours' notice. With the end of the occupation, the Americans returned part of the facility to Japanese control in 1952, completing the return in 1958. Haneda Airport in Ōta was the major international airport for Tokyo, and handled traffic for the 1964 Tokyo Olympics.

This section needs expansion. You can help by adding to it.(February 2017)

The city is run by a city assembly of 50 elected members. The current mayor is Tadayoshi Matsubara.

The southernmost of the 23 special wards, Ōta borders the special wards of Shinagawa, Meguro and Setagaya to the north, and Kōtō to the east. Across the Tama River in Kanagawa Prefecture is the city of Kawasaki, forming the boundaries to the south and west.

Canon headquarters
Toyoko Inn headquarters in Kamata
Sega original headquarters. After its offices were relocated to Shinagawa in January 2018, the original office in Ota was later sold in February 2019 and will likely be torn down.

The following companies have their headquarters in Ōta.

Former operations

Namco, best known for video game franchises such as Pac-Man, Galaxian, and Ace Combat, were headquartered in Ota. The company moved its operations there in 1985, using the funds generated from the successful Family Computer port of Xevious to fund the construction of its office. The building was taken over by Namco Bandai Games after it absorbed Namco in 2006, and later by an unrelated Namco company that focused on video arcades and theme parks. The newer Namco company moved out of the building in 2014 and it was demolished two years later.

Prior to the merger with Japan Airlines, Japan Air System had its headquarters by Tokyo International Airport in Ōta.

In 2000 All Nippon Airways was headquartered by Tokyo International Airport in Ōta. In 2002 Air Nippon was headquartered on the 5th floor of the Utility Center Building (ユーティリティセンタービル, Yūtiriti Sentā Biru) by Tokyo International Airport in Ōta. The ANA subsidiary Air Nippon Network was also based at the airport.

Before its dissolution, Galaxy Airlines was headquartered in the ARC Building on the airport grounds.

Sega and its parent company Sega Sammy Holdings, best known for its Sonic the Hedgehog franchise, was originally headquartered in Ota. However, Sega Sammy Holdings announced in April 2017 that it would relocate its head office functions and domestic subsidiaries to Shinagawa-ku by January 2018. This was to consolidate scattered head office functions including Sega Sammy Holdings, Sammy Corporation, Sega Holdings, Sega Games, Atlus, Sammy Network, and Dartslive. After the relocation to Shinagawa-ku was complete, Sega's previous headquarters in Ōta was later sold in February 2019 and will likely be torn down.

Gakken was headquartered in Ota from 1962 until 2008 when they moved their headquarters to Shinagawa-ku.
