    Fukui Fukui-shi Chuo 3
    An area on the right bank of Asuwa River in Fukui City that runs from Saiwai-bashi Bridge, past Sakura-bashi Bridge, until Tsukumo-bashi Bridge. The neighborhood prospered as being the river access for nearby Fukui Castle. Around 1955, after Fukui Castle was demolished, the area changed to a high-class restaurant district and bustling with geisha entertainers. In current times a number of the restaurant have been taken over and replaced with classic townhome themed cafes and izakaya pubs. It's become a neighborhood where you can appreciate the classic feel of the past-that-was while enjoying new exciting experiences.

Fukui Areas


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.
