Otake is a city blessed with nature and where culture and industry coexist harmoniously.
Inland, visitors will find Mikuradake, a three-peaked mountain shaped like a saw blade; Jabami, a stretch of river where holes, formed due to river erosion, of various shapes and sizes in the riverbed can be seen; and the beautiful Yasakakyo valley.
The coastal region is home to Kamei Park, a famous cherry blossom viewing spot, and Atatajima Island, where off the coast bustles with anglers.
Handmade paper production continues to thrive as a traditional industry.
