Fukui Prefecture

Fukui Prefecture

Fukui Prefecture is located in the Chubu Region along the coast of the Sea of Japan.

Fukui Prefecture can be found along the coast of the Sea of Japan. It borders Ishikawa, Shiga, Gifu, and Kyoto prefecture. The prefecture is part of the Chubu region in the Hokuriku area. It is mostly a rural area, but is known for their Echizen Coastline where the popular Mihama Beach is located. The capital of the prefecture is Fukui and has a population of about 795,000. In history, the prefecture was divided into two domains. Wakasa was to the west and Echizen was the eastern part of the region. During the Edo Period relatives of the Tokugawa family, the Matsudaira Clan, ruled the Echizen province. Towards the end of the Tokugawa Shogunate the last daimyo, Matsudaira Yoshinaga, of the province helped the transition of the Meiji government. Hakusan National Park, Echizen Kaga Kaigan, Wakasa Wan Quasi National Park, and Okuetsu Kogen Prefectural Natural Park cover a portion of the prefecture. A few of the sites to take note of is the Eiheiji Temple, Fukui Prefectural Dinosaur Museum, Fukui Castle, Yokokan Garden, Kita no Sho Castle, Ichijodani Asakura Family Historic Ruins, Maruoka Castle, Tojinbo Cliffs, and Obama City.
