Fukui

Formidable mountains, awesome seas, and a long tradition of Zen.

Visit Tojinbo with its unique coastal topography, and make a connection to nature and Zen at Eihei-ji Temple, the head temple of one of the schools of Buddhism. With a dinosaur museum, and ski resorts for skiing, sledding and other fun in the snow, everyone has fun regardless of age. And in winter, the snow crab is a great treat in this hot spring town!
