Welcome to the Official City of Sanjo Website

Welcome to the Official City of Sanjo English website. This website includes information on various city services, attractions, industries, and a guide to living in Sanjo.

Sanjo City is located near the heart of Niigata prefecture, and is famously known around Japan for its production of small metal goods. Japan's longest river, the Shinano River, flows past Sanjo and provides a rich agricultural farm belt in conjunction with the Ikarashi River. The city is very accessible via the Sanjo-Tsubame Interchange along the Hokuriku Expressway and the shinkansen (bullet train) stop at Tsubame-Sanjo Station.
