Border of Three Prefectures (Border that extends over Tochigi City, Tochigi, Itakura Town, Gunma and Kazo City, Saitama)
The border for three prefectures lies across Tochigi Prefecture’s Tochigi City, Gunma prefecture’s Itakura Town, Saitama Prefecture’s Kazo City (around the Kitakawabe region), and comes together right at a rice field approximately 500 meters in the southeast of Roadside Station Kitakawabe.
The border for the three prefectures used to be placed inside the Watarasegawa River, however, due to the restoration works of the river during the periods of Meiji and Taishō, the location has changed to the current river channel. From January to March of 2016, land measurements were carried out by Tochigi City, Itakura Town, and Kazo City. From these results, an old stake made from concrete was confirmed as the definite point of intersection for the three prefectures.
