Echizengani Museum越前がにミュージアム

3.5

Museum / Science Museum

This museum, which was reopened after renovations in 2016, is a place where you can encounter a new kind of “crab culture.” In this hands-on facility, visitors can have fun and learn about Echizen crabs and the mysteries of the Sea of Japan. The facility is divided into seven zones including the Crab Lab where you can study the different kinds of crabs and the structure of their bodies and the Under-sea Tunnel where you can see the different fish of the seasons off the Echizen coast.

Review of Echizen Crab Museum

TripAdvisor Traveler Rating
Reviewed:2019/11/17 2019年11月越前カニ祭り
2019年11月越前カニ祭りで大学2年の娘と訪れました。高速道路の事故、渋滞で到着が14時と出遅れました。道の駅越前で毎年開催されます。道路も渋滞、すごい人出です。カニを求めて「カニ食いに行こう」です。毎年、少しづつ値段が上がっています。けれど美味しいカニを食べに来てしまいました。
Reviewed:2019/05/07 一回見たらいい。
食事の順番待ちの、空いた時間に入りました。タッチプール、模型、説明なと。
ややありきたりかな?500円しました。
Reviewed:2019/03/01 タグつきのカニが泳ぐ。
規模的にけっして大きいものではありませんが、カニに特化していること、道の駅の併設施設であることを考えるとなかなか力の入っている施設だと思います。越前がにといえば黄色のタグですが、そのタグつきのカニが泳ぐ水槽もあります。2月に訪れたときはちょうどカニの赤ちゃんを見ることもできました。

          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.
