Greetings from Kizugawa City and thank you for taking the time to visit our webpage.


Since our founding in 2007, Kizugawa City has promoted community development that allows citizens to live, thrive, and feel content in their decision to live here.

Kizugawa boasts an abundance of natural wonders like the Kiuzgawa River and satoyama landscapes, and overflows with ancient history, as we are home to many designated cultural properties, second only to Kyoto City in number within Kyoto Prefecture.

Kizugawa is also home to the Kansai Science City, where cutting-edge research institutes congregate. Thanks in part to the Kansai Science City, our population has increased by 10,000 people and projects like the Kyoto University Livestock Farm and private enterprises have chosen to conduct their research and business in Kizugawa City.

Whether you're a resident or just stopping by for a short visit, we hope to impart the charm of our progressive city to everyone, and we will continuously strive to develop a community that encourages people and the city itself to be active and energetic.
