Ichijo Falls一乗滝


Ichijo Falls is a waterfall located in the upper reaches of Ichijodani River in Fukui City, Fukui Prefecture. This is where the famous sword master Sasaki Kojiro mastered his secret sword technique, known as Tsubame Gaeshi. It’s a popular spot for tourists who can witness the large mass of water crashing down the 12 meter high rock face. There is a statue of Sasaki Kojiro at the entrance to the waterfall and there are also some walking paths in the area.

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.
