Coast / Beach

This coast notable for its rugged rock cliffs has a number scenic spots of coastal beauty, including the kochomon, a natural tunnel created by the wind and the waves. The towering 130 meter-tall cliffs of Echizen Cape, the coast’s most scenic area, have been selected as one of Japan’s top 100 places to watch the sunset.

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.
