A popular attraction at this facility, where you can sightsee, shop and eat to enjoy your fill of the appeal of Wakasa is its 50-minute cruises on which you can enjoy the dynamic scenery created by the crashing waves of the Sea of Japan.

The 1st floor houses shops selling a wide range of Wakasa specialties and the 2nd floor a restaurant offering plentiful seasonal seafood.

          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.
