Ojiro is mostly a mountainous area and prides itself as the homeland of Wagyu cattle. Ojiro is designated as one of The Most Beautiful Villages in Japan, and is the birthplace of Tajiri-go, a Tajima Cattle who is the ancestor of more than 99.9% of Japanese Black wagyu.
Ojiro lies entirely within the San'in Kaigan Global Geopark.
The area of Ojiro was a town of Mikata. On April 1, 2005, town of Mikata, along with the town of Kasumi, and the town of Muraoka, was merged to create the town of Kami. At that time the portion of Kami that was Mikata renamed as Ojiro-ku (小代区), or Ojiro Ward, because some residents requested to use the traditional place name "Ojiro".
