With the symbol of the city being a Kamakura period castle perched on the top of Mount Kanayama, Ota is located in the extreme southeastern point of the Gunma Prefecture in the northern Kanto Plains of Japan with a population of around the 219,531 mark. A transportation hub, Ota is only 80km from colorful Tokyo, so it's easy to access or to run away from, if you need a change of location. Its' economy has been based in airplane production, but today it is mostly tied up in automobile production and is home to the car manufacturer Subaru. Farms sit in the northern outskirts of the city mostly producing rice and now coworking venues sit in its' streets.
