    広大な植物園で、四季折々の草花も楽しめる。 土日はクラフトのイベントもあるようです。 しかし、植物園内のトイレの清掃が行き届いていなかったり、老朽化しており、厳しいです。 (建物内トイレはきれいです。ただし和式) 小さい子連れにはオススメしません。

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.
