Cape Echizen越前岬


This cape, selected as one of Japan’s top 100 places to watch the sunset, is located in the northernmost part of Echizen Town. The scenic area features many reefs created by marine abrasion. Some of its most famous sites include the kochomon (a natural rock tunnel) and torikusoiwa (a massive 100-meter tall cliff). The observation deck has a great view of Echizen Suisen Land and the Sea of Japan. Sunsets at the cape are an especially stunning.

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.
