Tambasasayama ( Japanese 丹波 篠 山 市 , Tamba -Sasayama- shi , alternative Romanization Tanba ~ ) is a city in Hyōgo prefecture in Japan . Until 2019 the city was only called Sasayama ( 篠 山 市 Sasayamashi ).


Sasayama is located in an approximately 10 km long valley, surrounded by mountains up to 793 m high, about halfway between the Sea of ​​Japan and the Pacific . It borders Kyoto Prefecture to the east and Osaka Prefecture to the southeast .


Sasayama is an old castle town where the Aoyama clan last resided. On April 1, 1994 , the merger of the communities Sasayama ( 篠 山 町 , -chō ), Nishiki ( 西 紀 町 , -chō ), Tannan ( 丹南 町 , -chō ) and Konda ( 今 田 町 , -chō ) of Taki-gun ( 多 紀 郡 ) the city of Sasayama. In the former parishes there are now branches of the town hall.

On May 1, 2019, the city of Sasayama was renamed Tamba-Sasayama. In a referendum in November 2018, 56.5% of the voters approved the name change. The participation was 69.79% and thus well above the required quorum of 50%. At the same time, Mayor Takaaki Sakai was confirmed in office, who had driven the name change and resigned because of the popular vote successfully passed by citizen groups.
