Tantō is located at the far-eastern end of Toyooka City and bordered on three sides by Kyoto Prefecture. It is an area scattered with small villages, where there are stretches of beautiful fields nestled between mountains.
The area is home to many historical community theater stages that remain intact on shrine grounds. These wooden stages, dating back to the Edo era, were used for traveling kabuki performances and lively community plays put on by local residents. Tantō is also known for having had a significant impact on spirituality and culture, with many folk tales originating in the area being passed down across the ages.
