    Fukui Pref. Katsuyamashi Murokochou Terao 51-11 Dinosaur Museum
    Located inside the Fukui Prefectural Dinosaur Museum, Dino is a café-and-restaurant that offers a diverse menu of items, from museum originals to Fukui specialties, and fast food. It’s delicious and also fun to look at, with dinosaur footprint toppings and dinosaur-shaped nugget buns. You can also get “oroshi soba” (buckwheat noodles served with grated Japanese radish on top), a soul food of Fukui.

    Limited menu and nothing fancy but when there’s not much choice in the neighborhood (the other being at the train station), this will do just fine. The food is good, has English menu and the staff...

  • Yo-Roppaken restaurant (Tsuruga Main Restaurant)
    Gourmet / Alcohol
    Fukui Pref. Tsurugashi Aioichou 2-7
    Yo-Roppaken is the restaurant that, back in 1913, created the first “Sosu Katsudon” (a bowl of rice with a breaded and fried pork cutlet on top, served with Worcestershire sauce), the result of intensive experimentation by the restaurant owner (who had encountered Worcestershire sauce while working in Germany) to develop cuisine using Worcestershire sauce that would appeal to Japanese palates; today, “Sosu Katsudon” is a famous Fukui specialty dish. Other popular dishes at Yo-Roppaken include Pari Don (which uses menchi-katsu—a fried cake of minced meat—instead of a pork cutlet) and Shrimp Don. Yo-Roppaken is located around eight-minute drive from JR Tsuruga Station.

    Fukui Pref. Echizenshi Awatabechou 26-20
    This venerable soba restaurant opened in 1871. Their handmade soba noodles made with buckwheat flour made in the prefecture are boiled to order. We recommend their oroshisoba (soba noodles topped with grated daikon radish), which combines their springy and substantial thick-cut noodles with a carefully-selected seasonal blend of four varieties of grated daikon radish. Their arabiki oroshisoba (soba with roughly grated daikon radish), which is only available from April to November, is also quite popular.

    My first taste was back in 1984 as an assistant teacher of English; the local faculty invited me to lunch there. Returns to rural west Japan (formerly Imadate, but since 10/2005 merged with nextdoor...

It's made up of both the Hotel Urban Port and the Shikisai-no-Yado Hanatsubaki ryokan and includes facilities such as an observation bath that looks out over the Wakasa Obama Bay.

    We came here with a cycle tour. Good room overlooked harbour and views of setting sun. Hotel is a bit tired, and bathroom small. Staff very helpful (using electronic translator to overcome...

    Fukui Fukui-shi Joto 1-4-18
    This restaurant serves handmade soba noodles made exclusively with buckwheat flour from Fukui Prefecture. They use a 10:1 buckwheat flour to filler ratio in order to preserve the fragrance of the buckwheat. Their stock is made with Rishiri kombu kelp, thick-sliced katsuobushi (dried bonito flakes) from Makurazaki and other five ingredients. The restaurant offers a choice of two styles of noodle: thick-cut noodles, which every springy texture; and thin-cut noodles, which go down silky-smooth. Their most popular item is their cold oroshisoba, a specialty of the Echizen region that consists of soba noodles served with a dipping sauce containing grated daikon radish. Their kakiage soba, which is served with a hearty tempura fritter made with domestic scallops, is also popular.

    Fukui Fukui-shi Junka 1-10-1
    A long-standing curry and coffee shop. They were in the Katamachi area for over 50 years but moved due to renovation of the surrounding buildings. They moved to their current location just a few years ago. They brought much of their interior design including their chandelier and chairs with them from the old location so the inner atmosphere of the shop is unchanged. And of course their menu is still the same allowing you to enjoy their classic slow-stewed western-style curry.

    前菜がついたランチメニューを選択し、本日のパスタかピッツァを選ぶものをパスタでいただきました。前菜は茄子マリネなどお野菜を一口大に料理したものやお肉などちょこちょことサラダと一緒に盛ったものでした。本日のパスタはパンチェッタのカルボナーラでした。カルボナーラはあまり好きではないのですが、胡椒とチーズと卵が絶妙にアルデンテの麺に絡み思っていたよりあっさりといただけておいしかったです。これにパンと食後...

    スキーの昼食でよく使います。 ピザは普通においしいです。その他のパスタやスイーツもゲレ食と比較するとおいしいと思います。 宿泊の方で、朝食はそんなにいらないという方は、前日にコンビニなどでおにぎりなどを買っておいて朝食バイキングを食べないで、ブランチ券に交換して昼ごはんで使用するという手もあります。

Fukui Areas

around-area-map

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.
