Located in the southwestern part of Saga Prefecture, it is surrounded by the Ariake Sea to the east and the Taradake mountain range to the west, making it blessed with a beautiful natural environment. It is home to Yutoku Inari Shrine, one of Japan’s three major Inari shrines, and Sakagura Street, which is lined with historic houses that have been designated as an Important Preservation District for Groups of Traditional Buildings.

It is also famous.
These events are based on the common goal of revitalizing Kashima, a small town that is not accessed by Shinkansen or expressways. The event was started to take advantage of the moment when a local sake brewery received the highest award at a world-renowned sake fair and attracted attention, and has now become a major event that involves the entire town and attracts many people from Japan and abroad. It has evolved into
What is the charm of Kashima City?

Hometown Donation, which provides these special products, has collected over 1 billion yen in donations.
It’s not just the special products, but the efforts of individual citizens who are working to liven up Kashima that make it even more attractive. They provide hospitality with the desire for people visiting Kashima to enjoy themselves.
I think more people need to know about this charm.

In order to carry out these events, we are soliciting donations through crowdfunding and corporate hometown tax payments. We are also looking for event ideas.
“Rather, from now on.”
The situation surrounding Kashima City has become more difficult than before, such as the declining birthrate and aging population, and the decline in convenience of the JR Nagasaki Main Line due to the opening of the Nishi-Kyushu Shinkansen, but in order to aim for a sustainable town development unique to Kashima, we are working to improve the neighborhood. We will promote collaboration with municipalities and initiatives for decarbonization, SDGs, and DX.
We would like many people, not just citizens, to learn about Kashima’s charms and initiatives, and to support them. To this end, we will rediscover and dig deeper into the city’s charms, incorporating outside perspectives such as collaboration with major publishers, and create a foundation for public-private collaboration to promote not only tourist spots and specialty products. We will continue to disseminate information that also focuses on the people who make the town attractive.
We will strengthen information dissemination and aim to improve Kashima City’s name recognition and gain Kashima fans.
