Other Factory Tour / Demonstration

In 1979, a first for the nation’s cutlery industry, Echizen Uchihamono (cutlery) was designated as a Nationally Designated Traditional Craft, as it carries with it 700 years of history and tradition. At Takefu Knife Village, there are plant tours and short trial courses, so you have the opportunity to make a paperknife yourself with the help of a traditional artisan.

Reviewed:2019/05/31 Great tour
Had a wonderful time. Very friendly people and really nice way to learn about knife making. I found Ikebana scissors which is a delight. They also sell designers knives.

Our Hands On Japan tour took us to observe the making of absolutely beautiful, utilitarian knives.. They gave us a blade,taught us how to sharpen it ... and when completed.... mounted it in a handle...

          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.
