明治時代、東京発敦賀経由ウラジオストクからシベリア鉄道で欧州に行けた時の場所です。現在は敦賀からはフェリーで北海道へ行けるみたいです。当時の敦賀は相当栄えていたのでしょう。

          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.
