Every summer an old-fashioned steam locomotive runs tours from nearby Hakodate through Onuma Park in Nanae.

Site of the first battle in the American Revolutionary war, the bridge is perhaps Concord’s most famous historical site.

Bordering Nanae, the city of Hakodate has a population of just under 280,000 and enjoys its own unique history; in 1854 it was the first Japanese port city to be opened to foreign trade.

Every fall the town of Nanae sends a delegation to Concord, mostly made up of students. In 2011, the entire brass band from Nanae High School made the trip, making it the largest delegation in the town’s history.
