Nagato consists of five smaller towns that were absorbed over the past several years. The towns are Fukawa, Senzaki, Yuya, Heki and Misumi (all from Ōtsu District). Nagato also encompasses Omijima Island and the township of Kayoi.
The nearby Omijima Island has many pebbled beaches and scuba diving on one of its northern beaches. The island is reached by a large road bridge which connects the Senzaki Peninsula with the southern edge of the island.
There are many onsen on the southern edge of the town in Yumoto with hot springs.
