As of 2008, the town had an estimated population of 4,859 and a population density of 27.2 persons per km². The town's total area was 178.49 km².
On March 30, 2009, Kitagō, along with the town of Nangō (also from Minaminaka District), was merged into the expanded city of Nichinan. Minaminaka District was dissolved as a result of this merger.
Kitago literally means "north shire". The town is in the northern part of the former Obi Shire, Himuka.
The town was established as a village in 1889 by merging the villages of Gonohara, Ofuji and Kitagawachi; which was later elevated to town status in 1959.
