About Kaneyama

The area where Kaneyama‐machi is located was called ‘Kaneyama‐dani (Kaneyama valley)’ in earlier times.
In the medieval period the area was under the control of the Yamanouchi clan, one of the four ruling families of the Aizu area. Later, in the Edo period (1603-1867), it became a part of ‘Minamiyama‐okurairi’, a vast shogunate demain which also included the Oze area.
In 1955 the villages of Numazawa, Kawaguchi, Honna, and Yokota, were consolidated into Kaneyama‐mura (the Japanese word ‘mura’ means ‘village’ in English), which was reorganized as a town in 1958, based on the Town Ordinance, and was named Kaneyama‐machi.
Kaneyama‐machi has a total area of 293.97 square kilometers, 90 percent of which is a mountainous region, a population of approximately 2,500 (1,121 households) and 30 various‐sized communities.
The senior citizens' rate of the town is about 55 percent and is one of the highest in the Tohoku region.
With the aim of creating' ‘a town happy with the laughter of children’, we are striving to construct a comfortable town to live in.

Location/Climate

Kaneyama‐machi is in the western part of Fukushima Prefecture,
and is on the middle reaches of the Tadami‐gawa River, which runs down from its source in a clear stream in Oze. The town borders Niigata Prefecture and Echigo Mountain Range.
It takes about 40 minutes from the Aizu‐Bange Interchange of the Ban‐etsu Expressway to get to the center of the town, Kawaguchi, and also two hours from the City of Aizuwakamatsu to Kaneyama‐machi on the JR Tadami Line.
This area has a climate that is typical of districts facing the Sea of Japan and is one of the areas with the heaviest snowfall in Japan.
The town is covered with continual snow over four months in winter.
