FUKUI PREFECTURE

Fukui Prefecture has it all - spectacular coasts, lakes, history, and culture preserved in museums and heritage sites. Fukui prides itself on its artisanal legacy, with a history of products from pottery to spectacles. Gorgeous seafood dishes served at traditional Japanese inns by the famously welcoming locals complement the countryside and culture perfectly. Away from the better-known sights, the prefecture has even more to recommend it, whether it’s the hot spring resorts of Awara, the famous ‘castle in the clouds’ of Ono, the wonderful history and lakes of Wakasa, or Katsuyama’s renowned dinosaur museum.
