Echizen Ono Castle越前大野城

Historical Monument

Echizen Ono Castle was built by Kanamori Nagachika who was Oda Nobunaga’s vassal, and recently it has also been called “castle in the sky Echizen Ono Castle”. The Ono basin is surrounded by mountains on every side. The lofty castle rises up at the central part of Kameyama, however, when the castle town is wrapped in a sea of clouds, the castle appears as if it is floating in the sky. It is said that the period from October to the end of April is when this phenomenon occurs, and it is especially likely to occur around November. It is recommended to view it from Inuyama which is located to the west of Echizen Ono Castle.

          Fukui Main 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.
