There are also original products incorporating typical Wakasa historical and natural scenes in their designs on sale.

    This a great place to learn about the history, importance and influence of the Wakasa area. It is a very informative tour and I recommend going there. However, it may seem small compared to other...

    浜岡や女川などこの手のピーアールセンターとしては撮影禁止箇所もなく意外と拍子抜け。東京電力福島第一原子力発電所事故の概要が矢鱈詳しく分析されています。それを受けての関西電力における美浜発電所の安全対策や安全性向上対策の取組み状況のコントラストが印象的。トイレの温水洗浄便座が機能していれば猶良し。

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.
