Togane City Edit
Tōgane (東金市, Tōgane-shi) is a city located in Chiba, Japan. As of 2003, the city has an estimated population of 61,318 and the density of 686.34 persons per km². The total area is 89.34 km².
The city was founded on April 1, 1954.
Togane City is home to the Kurenai Kai School of Japanese Embroidery, which produces exquisite, handmade obi and kimono in the traditional Japanese style.
Togane is known for strawberry picking in February and March. Strawberries are grown in green houses. They are very delicious. Because there is not much industry remaining in some rural areas of Japan like Togane, it is also beginning to boast a decent antique market as old farm houses are torn down.
In Spring, the Sakura Matsuri is held at Lake Hakakko, usually in early April.
In late August is the Yassa Matsuri. It takes place at the center of town, and everyone takes part in the Yassa dance.
By train Edit
