Claims to Fame
The area once boasted the largest national production output of
toothpicks. This is no longer the case, with most toothpicks now being imported from overseas. The city still sticks to its former reputation as "Toothpick capital".
Kawachinagano is known for its local dialect of Japanese, "Kawachi-ben", which is known for its rough, blue-collar appeal. "Kawachi-ben" is spoken in the "Kawachi" area, which includes Kawachinagano, yet extends as far north as Yao.
