Experience traditional crafts and local scenery.
Fukui Prefecture walking tour!

Two days to enjoy traditional crafts and scenery of Fukui Prefecture.

Fukui, located in the northern part of the Kansai region, is an area that is attracting a lot of attention with the opening of the Shinkansen bullet train line in March 2024.
This tour is designed to experience the culture that has been passed down from generation to generation and to visit the wonderful scenery.

With the opening of the Shinkansen bullet train line, Fukui Prefecture retains many good old-fashioned landscapes that are expected to attract more tourists from overseas in the future.
For this tour, we have chosen crafts, scenery, and other contents that represent Fukui Prefecture.
Join this two-day tour to experience some of Japan's great landscapes that have not yet been introduced in many guidebooks!

Lunch time with a spectacular view of Mikatagoko Terrace!

Mikata Goko is the collective name for the five lakes of Mikata, Suigetsu, Suga, Kuko, and Hyuga, which straddle Mihama and Wakasa towns in Fukui Prefecture. The five lakes differ in water quality and depth, and all appear a different shade of blue, hence the name "Five Color Lakes. The differences can be clearly seen from the 11.2-km long prefectural road Mikatagoko Rainbow Line, which offers a dynamic view of the five lakes and the Sea of Japan. In November 2005, the area was registered as a Ramsar Convention wetland, and in 2019, its sustainable fishing culture was recognized as a Japan Agricultural Heritage Site.

Experience traditional papermaking at the Ryozo Yanase Paper Mills!

Yanase Ryozo Paper Mills was born in Echizen Washi, which has a history and tradition of over 1,500 years. Let's touch the unique technical construction method of paper with the "gentleness, severity, and stubbornness" of the founder, Ryozo!

There are 12 castles in Japan that still have keepers built before the Edo period. They are collectively called "existing tenshukaku (twelve existing castle keepers). Maruoka Castle is one of these valuable keepers and the only one remaining in the Hokuriku region.
It is designated as an important cultural property under the Law for the Protection of Cultural Properties and is preserved as such.

Visit the Fukui Prefectural Dinosaur Museum for an impressive full-body skeleton tour!

The Dinosaur Museum has a dome-shaped permanent exhibition room divided into three zones: "The World of Dinosaurs," "Science of the Earth," and "History of Life. In the vast pillarless space, dinosaur skeletons, fossils, rocks, and dioramas are displayed, allowing visitors to enjoy the world of geology and paleontology, including dinosaurs.
Fifty full-body skeletons of dinosaurs are on display, ten of which are made from actual fossils. Visitors can experience the age of dinosaurs through a life-size diorama of a scene from the Mesozoic era in China's Sichuan Province and a dino theater with a face-to-face screen.
