Tagawa was historically a coal mining city, and is easily recognizable by its two tall chimneys located near Tagawa-Ita (田川伊田駅). Currently active industries in Tagawa include limestone and cement production. Tirol (チロル) miniature chocolates are manufactured in Tagawa. The TRIAL Kyushu warehouse is located in Ita-machi, and services TRIAL discount stores in all prefectures in Kyushu.
Tagawa is serviced by two main JR stations, Tagawa-Ita (田川伊田) and Tagawa-Gotōji (田川後藤寺). These stations provide transport links to Kokura, Hita, and Shin-Iizuka via the Hitahikosan Line (日田彦山線) and Gotōji Line (後藤寺線). In addition, the private rail company Heisei Chikuho Railway Line (terminal points: Yukuhashi and Nōgata) makes major stops at both Tagawa-Ita and Tagawa-Gotōji.
