Overview of Fukui

“Untamed nature.”

Located along the coast of the Sea of Japan, Fukui prefecture is one of Japan’s least populated prefectures. It is known for its beaches along the Echizen coastline during the summer and its ragged coastlines of rock formations throughout the year. Much of the prefecture’s land area is dedicated to national parks and popular attractions include the Soto Zen temple, Eiheiji, a training monastery home to around 200 practicing monks, and the Fukui Dinosaur Museum which houses dinosaur fossils.
