Tsuruga Red Brick Warehouse (敦賀赤レンガ倉庫)


Historical Monument

The Tsuruga Red Brick Warehouse was designed by a foreign engineer in 1905, and its North building, South building and brick walls were registered as a National Tangible Cultural Property in 2009. It is a place to meet nostalgia and get a sense for the port atmosphere. You can enjoy Tsuruga history in the Diorama Building, fancy dining on Tsuruga seafood in the restaurant building, and strolls amid the sea breeze in the open garden. Seven minutes by car via Tsuruga Interchange on Hokuriku Expressway.

          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.
