Fukui's culinary specialties

Wakasa Bay is a culinary goldmine, with fish resources that were well known in the ancient capital Kyoto. The route taken by these products was even nicknamed "the mackerel route"

In winter, many seafood-loving Japanese long for the popular Echizen crab, and do not hesitate to travel from distant regions to Fukui to enjoy it! 

Thanks to the exceptional quality of the water used to water the crops, the chefs of the region just have to let the flavours express themselves in their dishes.

Fukui Prefectural Dinosaur Museum

The modern Fukui Prefectural Dinosaur Museum was designed by Kisho Kurokawa, who was the architect of the Tokyo National Art Centre, and completed in 2000. 

The Fukui Prefectural Dinosaur Museum is one of the three largest dinosaur museums in the world and is an active international dinosaur research centre with a team of Japanese and foreign specialists in residence. More dinosaurs have been found in the Katsuyama area of Fukui, where the museum is located, than anywhere else in Japan. 

To get to the Fukui Prefectural Dinosaur Museum by public transportation, take the Echizen Railway from Fukui Eichizen Railway Station at the eastern exit of Fukui Station to the last stop in Katsuyama. From there, it is a 15-20 minute ride by community bus to the museum.
