We hope that the excerpts below, showing off some of our recommendations for destinations in Fukui, will help make your next visit more enjoyable.↓

South-① (No.71)
Kotone Tunnel

From Tsuruga City to Minami Echizen-cho, vestiges of the rail lines that supported the prefecture’s growth and development dot the landscape. In Tsuruga City’s Tone area, the Kotone Tunnel, through which the former Hokuriku Main Line ran until 1964, still stands today, its keystone bearing the year of its construction, 1881.



South-② (No.72)
Vantage point at the Suizu Parking Area


The current Suidsu Parking Area sits atop the remains of the old Suidsu Station, along the Hokuriku Line’s former main line. Now, the Suidsu Parking Area retains that same entrancing panorama, allowing travelers and passers-by to watch the sun set over the Sea of Japan, slowly disappearing across Tsuruga Bay.



South-⑥ (No.76)
Kehi-jingu Shrine’s grand torii gate


Kehi Shrine’s grand torii gate is among the three largest wooden shrine gates in Japan. Standing at 11m tall, this impressive structure is a beloved symbol of the city.



South-⑧ (No.78)
Kehi no Matsubara Beach

The view created by its white sands and 17,000 pine trees in the space of 400,000 square meters have earned it national recognition as a place of scenic beauty.

気比(けひ)の松原は、40万㎡の広さの中に 17,000本の松が生い茂る国の名勝地です。


South-⑨ (No.79)

Muzushima, an island comprised of two smaller sand islands, also called “Hawaii of Hokuriku”, floats in Tsuruga Bay near the pristine beaces of Iro ga Hama. The clear blue waters of the ocean cresting over the shore bring to life the very views that captivated poets Saigyō and Bashō, whose works rhapsodized about their allure.



South-⑫ (No.82)
Five Lakes of Mikata

The natural beauty of the Five Lakes of Mikata is representative of the Wakasa Bay National Park, and has enjoyed the highest of reputations from the days of the Manyōshū to the present.



South-⑬ (No.83)
Performance of the Ō-no-mai at Mimi-jinja Shrine

Every May brings a performance of the Ō-no-mai, a traditional dance which is performed at Mimi-jinja Shrine, at the western foot of Mt. Mitakesan in the east of Mihama-cho’s Miyashiro district.



South-⑯ (No.86)
Water flowing along Uriwari Waterfall

Uriwari Waterfall, whose waters originate in a gorge within the bounds of Wakasa-cho’s Tentoku-ji, derives its name from the clean, clear waters that comprise its flow. Throughout the year its temperature changes little, always cold enough to split melons placed in its waters, hence its name



South-⑱ (No.88)
Sotomo Arch

Obama City faces the open ocean from Wakasa Bay and the inland sea of Obama Bay. Nearby Uchitomi Peninsula stretches 6km into Wakasa Bay, and is home to a rare rias coastline which includes the caves and monumental rock formations of Sotomo Arch.

Myorakuji Temple’s statue of the thousand-armed Kannon

Hagaji Temple’s 11-faced standing statue of Kannon (a National Important Cultural Property), and Myorakuji Temple’s statue of the thousand-armed Kannon are some of the many temples and Buddhist statues that convey to us the history of Buddhism.



South-㉓ (No.93)
Super ogase

In late August every year, the waters of the Aoto Inlet and Ōshima Peninsula in Ōi-cho are aglow with the brilliant display that is the Wakasa Ōi Super Ōgase fireworks festival. This 300-plus year-old festival has been designated a Prefectural Intangible Folk Cultural Property.



South-㉗ (No.97)

Standing where Takahama Castle looked out over the ocean during the Muromachi Period, Shiroyama Park has been recognized for the beauty of its eight caves (thus gaining the name Yana no Kishō, or “Beautiful Spot of Eight Caves”). Most prominent among them is Meikyōdō, through which observers can enjoy a view of the ocean horizon,



South-㉙ (No.99)
Hibiki’s terraced rice fields

Uchiura Bay, an ocean inlet on the border between Fukui and Kyoto Prefecture, is dotted with cliffs slowly carved by ocean waves over countless years, including the 260m-tall Otomi Cliff. On the eastern-facing slope of the coastline are Hibiki’s terraced rice fields, selected as one of the best 100 terraced rice fields in Japan.
