There is a town in Gifu prefecture in Japan called Shikke. In kanji in is written like this:


Lets break down these kanji components and see what we get.

    shiri, jiri, kou     尻       buttocks, backside, rear end.
ke, ge, mou 毛 hair, wool, fur

So there are all these people who live in a town called ass-hair. It must do wonders for property values.

By the way, I'm not making this up.

I just realized that perhaps not everyone will be able to see the above kanji in their intended form. I apologize as I don't know how to render them in the correct Unicode format.
Well I do now thanks to sekicho. thanks
