Oshima Island雄島

Island

Oshima Island, the largest islet on the Echigo Coast, has long been called “the island of the gods” by the people of the region. It can be accessed from the mainland via the vermillion-lacquered Oshima Bridge. The islet is part of Echizen-Kaga Kaigan Quasi-National Park. This beautiful place, a mere 27 meters tall and two kilometers in circumference, is full of legends and mystery.

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.
