Reference/Local/Exhibition/Literature Museum

Obama, which was the center of Miketsukuni, is a historic place where Wakasa seafood and salt were presented to the ancient Imperial Court and this museum was created as a place where people could come into contact with this history and culture and interact with other people. The museum is divided into sections to introduce the diet of this region with replicas of dishes such as Zoni (rice cake soup)—the Symbol of Japanese New Year Food, Traditional Events and Foods which introduce a year in the folklore treasure trove, Wakasa Obama, based on foods, and Miketsukuni Wakasa and Saba Kaido (the ancient mackerel route) which is Japan Heritage. A number of courses are also offered.

          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.
