What is Naie Town, Hokkaido?
It is a town with a population of approximately 5,000 people located in the center of the Sorachi region of Hokkaido (approximately halfway between Sapporo and Asahikawa). National Route 12 (a road that can be called the main artery of Hokkaido with a total length of 156.8 km) runs north-south through the center of the town, and the 29.2 km from Bibai City to Takikawa City, passing through Naie Town, is the longest in Japan. It is a straight road. Naie Town is located exactly in the middle. Even as the population declines, the birthrate declines, and the aging population progresses, we are working to resolve various issues in order to create a “city where everyone can thrive throughout their lives,” where everyone can have a purpose in life, a role to play, and play an active role.
The town’s catchphrase is “Zudon”
“Zudon” originates from Naie Town, the town with the most straight roads in Japan, but it resonates with the expansive rural landscape, majestic mountain range, and generous nature of Naie Town, as well as the various tangible and intangible resources that this town has. It represents power. As introduced on the previous page, there are a variety of ways to use it both inside and outside the town. It’s not just something that fits on the shoulders of office staff’s business cards or envelopes, but it can be used in a variety of situations depending on the ideas of each town’s residents, businesses, and organizations, creating communication and helping Naie Town become more We aim to create a unique perspective that is different from that of the city.
“Zudon” is expanding rapidly.
By distributing Zudon stickers for free, unique usage examples can be posted on Instagram etc., large curtains using Zudon can be installed at city halls and pedestrian bridges, and various goods and hometown tax return gifts can be distributed. , mugs, bowls, Zudon curry, and other menu items are appearing one after another. In addition, children in the town created LINE stamps in the image of Zudon at a workshop. In addition to being used at festivals and events in the town, it has been used in a variety of ways, including in the town’s newsletter and businesses in the town, and has even been featured on TV news.
