About Konan Ward

 Konan Ward was established on April 1、 2007. It was formed by combining the former Kameda、 Yokogoshi、 Sonoki、 Ryokawa、 and Oeyama districts.
 Konan Ward is located in central Niigata City、 bordered by the Shinano River、 the Agano River、 the Koagano River、 and the Nihonkai Tohoku Expressway.
 Thanks to many years of land improvement efforts、 Konan Ward boasts extensive、 fertile agricultural areas where not only rice、 but also vegetables、 fruits、 and flowers are grown in abundance. In addition to these fields、 Konan Ward has industrial parks and zones for factories producing food products、 and the manufacturing industry is flourishing. Since the ward is located close to downtown、 there are also plenty of residential areas and shopping centers.
 Visitors to Konan Ward will find one of Niigata City's top sightseeing spots、 namely the Northern Culture Museum. As the former villa of a wealthy landowning family、 this valuable museum is a wonderful place to learn about Niigata's history and culture.

Konan Ward has a very convenient transportation network with key national highways and prefectural roads、 such as the Nihonkai Tohoku Expressway and the Ban-etsu Expressway. As for railroads、 the JR Shin-etsu Main Line runs through the ward. The steady flow of many people and goods through the area makes Konan Ward a strategic location in terms of transportation. The ward is also home to the Niigata City Chuo Wholesale Market、 which was completed in 2007.
