Welcome to Kitaharima

The Kita-Harima region in Hyogo Prefecture is where 35° north latitude and 135° east longitude cross,
and is made up of six municipalities : Nishiwaki City, Miki City, Ono City, Kasai City, Kato City and
Taka Town. Surrounded by the remaining virgin landscape of Japan here and there, you will find

history - you will find people's lifestyles deeply rooted in this place.

more about the region, you should come and walk, see and eat and talk to the local people. Dramatic, beautiful and
attractive Kita-Harima will definitely make your trip a pleasure.
