Experience Hall / Accommodation Experience (Training) Facility

With a long 1,500-year history and tradition, Echizen is the home of washi (Japanese paper) and of the Echizen Washi Village. This facility includes the “Paper & Culture Museum” —with lots of special, local washi products and history of Echizen washi—and the “Udatsu Paper & Craft Museum” —a reconstructed paper-making house where you can observe craftsman techniques firsthand. In the “Papyrus House,” you can try making washi paper, popular for toddlers and adults alike.

          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.
