The Noka Falls are the largest-scale falls in Wakasa region, featuring a 30 meter drop and inciting many mysterious legends. It is a place of wondrous views, whether the awe-inspiring scene when snow starts to melt or the view of cool waters of summer with their crystalline clarity. And it’s well known as the cradle of Shakunage (a type of shrub). It takes about 10 minutes to reach the falls on foot, but the path can be slippery during rains, so make sure to wear comfortable shoes.

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.
