Cave

One of the Echizen Coast’s most notable sights, this large tunnel-like rock formation was created by eons of erosion by the wind and the waves. The rock formation, famous for being one of the best places to experience the natural beauty of the Echizen Coast, makes it appear as if the cliff is jutting out into the ocean. A promenade has been built nearby, allowing visitors to get a close look at the formation.

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.
