LOCATION

Mizumaki Town is in the northern part of Fukuoka Prefecture. Fukuoka Prefecture, in turn, is in the northern part of Kyushu Island. Checking the position of the town and Japan on a world map, you can see that Japan lies at the same longitude as Russia to the north, and Australia to the south. If you go east and cross the Pacific Ocean, you will find the U.S. at the same latitude as Japan. Going west at that latitude, you will find China. If you continue across Asia, you will find Morocco in northern Africa at roughly the same latitude.

 

AREA

Mizumaki Town is in the middle of Onga County. Mizumaki has strong ties to the other three towns in the county, Ashiya Town to the north, Onga Town on the west bank of the Onga River, and Okagaki Town in the western part of the county. To the east of Mizumaki Town lies the city of Kita-Kyushu, and south of Mizumaki is Nakama City. Mizumaki is a long, narrow, slightly triangular town running north and south. Its area is small, and the town ranks only number 91 in area of Fukuoka Prefecture's 97 municipalities.
