What Is The Kita-Harima Den-en Kukan Museum?

about_photo_01_en.gif The Kita-Harima Den-en Kukan Museum (Den-Ku) is actually the entire Kita-Harima area, ranging from Taka-cho to Nishiwaki City. We regard it as a "museum," showing various exhibits at satellite locations, including some things that we would like to show off and some of the best things in Japan.

about_photo_02_en.gif The landscapes, festivals, facilities, daily work and people in Kita-Harima are familiar to local residents, but they seem fresh and interesting to the eyes of visitors. The original idea of the project was that we would like to confidently interact with people inside and outside of the community and hand over our beautiful hometown to our children and grandchildren. We would also like to have many people visit and become familiar with it. Den-Ku is supported by members, workers at the satellite locations, the suppliers of specialty products and many others. 

Registered Satellites (a few examples out of more than 200 satellite locations)

Activities to support the satellite locations throughout the year include one-day bus tours departing from the cities, "Experience Agri" bus tours, walking events (the longest promenade in Japan), experience classes and personally planned events held at or around the Den-Ku Information Center. We also communicate information on various events held at each satellite location.
