国道305号線沿いにあり、通りがかりに寄ってみました。展望台まで行っても一時間弱といったところ。西洋館は中まで見られます。展示は昔の地方の博物館というところですが、右近家の歴史が興味深いので、面白い。損保ジャパン寄贈の旗が道沿いにあり、「?」となるけど、見れば納得。

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.
