Fukui

What is Fukui?

Northeast of Kyoto, the ancient Tojinbo Cliffs separate Fukui prefecture from the Sea of Japan in a stretch of land well worth exploring. Water sports and seaside delicacies are available in abundance as the spectacular rugged coastline flattens down into beaches to the west of the prefecture, while inland, Fukui is home to Zen Buddhist temples and historic ruins.

Getting Around

Most certainly not one of the easiest prefectures to access from Tokyo, Fukui is best combined with a trip to its surrounding prefectures. Fukui Station lies less than one hour from Kanazawa on a direct JR train or 1.5 hours from Kyoto on the JR Thunderbird 25.
