Other Historic Site/Building

The Ichijodani Asakura Family Historic Ruins are the remains of a castle town, located in the Kidonouchi Town of Fukui City. The ruined town, which was ruled by the Asakura family for five generations over a period of 103 years in Japan’s Sengoku (Warring States) period, has been the subject of archeological excavation work, and has been designated as a Special Historic Site and as a Special Place of Scenic Beauty. Visitors can learn about the prosperity of the Asakura family and the culture of the period by examining restored artifacts from excavated samurai houses and townspeople’s houses at the Ichijodani Asakura Family Site Museum, and by viewing the site of Asakura Yoshikage’s mansion and the associated gardens.

          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.
