Kyōtango

Description

Kyōtango (京丹後市, Kyōtango-shi) is a city located in Kyoto Prefecture, Japan. The modern city of Kyōtango was established on April 1, 2004, from the merger of the towns of Mineyama and Omiya (both from the Naka District), the towns of Amino, Tango, and Yasaka (all from the Takeno District), and the town of Kumihama (from the Kumano District). The Naka, Takeno, and Kumano Districts were dissolved as a result of the merger.
Mineyama, now part of Kyōtango, has a close connection with the Hagoromo legend. The Kumihama area is well known for its many hot springs, while Amino is one of the major producers of Tango Chirimen.
The entire area of Kyōtango is in the eastern part of the San'in Kaigan Geopark.
