Habutae-Mochi Sohonpo Matsuoka-ken Main Store (羽二重餅總本舗 松岡軒 本店)
A long-standing Japanese confectioner that's been open for over 100 years. It's claimed to be the birthplace of Fukui's famous Habutaemochi rice dumpling. This famous shop, beloved to the locals, has also made an appearance in the famous manga, Chihayafuru. Here at the main store they also sell other treats including Habutaemochi filled Monaka wafer cakes and Dorayaki, pancaked stuffed with red bean paste. During the summer they also sell Japanese-style shaved ice with Habutaemochi stuck in it. While in the winter they sell the special Ichimai Nagashi Mizuyokan red bean jelly, which in Fukui is synonymous with the season.

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.
