  • Overview You can't Edit

    Users Assigned: Shimizu77  
    Just north of Kyoto is Fukui, a prefecture long renowned for its unique combination of history and superb natural scenery.
  • History You can't Edit

    Users Assigned: Shimizu77  
    For centuries it has been called the Echizen region, and that culturally significant name has definitely stuck.

    Historical heritage is very much the theme at Iehidani. Preserved here is an entire 16th century village that served as the head-quarters of the Asakura clan, which ruled Echizen until 1573. The painstakingly recreated buildings contain exhibits of the trades and crafts of the day, including a dyer's workshop, a merchant's office, and samurai homes.
  • What can you see and do? You can't Edit

    Users Assigned: Shimizu77  
    The Echizen coast includes famous columnar rock formations at Tojimbo and Sotomo, as well as some of Japan's finest beaches. Culinary delights include Echizen crab and distinctive Echizen soba. And the simple natural style of Echizen pottery has been popular throughout the country for hundreds of years, as have Echizen's highly regarded lacquerware and hand-crafted knives.
