On September 20, 2005 the town merged with the town of Tazawako and the village of Nishiki to form the new city of Senboku.

The town is famed for its preserved samurai houses and the proliferation of cherry trees. It is a popular destination for hanami, or cherry-blossom viewing. It is sometimes referred as 'the little Kyoto of Tohoku' (みちのくの小京都 Michinoku no sho-kyoto).
