Nakatsu is a small city on the north coast of Oita-prefecture, just east of its

During the Edo Period of Japanese history, Nakatsu was a mid-sized domain, and the

town itself has recently expanded to include outlying towns and districts and now comprises

almost 500 square kilometers with a population of almost 85,000.
