On January 1, 2010, Yogo, along with the towns of Kohoku and Torahime (both from Higashiazai District), and the towns of Kinomoto, Nishiazai and Takatsuki (all from Ika District), was merged into the expanded city of Nagahama. Higashiazai District and Ika District were both dissolved as a result of this merger.
Yogo is located in northernmost Shiga and considerably cold in winter with high snowfall. There is a small lake which is famous for a Swan Maiden legend.
