2019/01/11

Places to visit

There are many places to visit and things to do in Fukui throughout the year.

In winter, eating crabs and going to hot spring are my favorite things to do.

There is another thing that is enjoyable during winter in Fukui is

"Echizen Coast Suisen (daffodil) Festival".

 

Today, I would like to introduce the festival and the area that has the beautiful daffodils.

Suisen Land

 

The Echizen coast of Fukui Prefecture is known as one of

the three great Japanese daffodil fields. From around December to March,

about 15 million daffodils bloom at Echizen Suisen Land.

At the Echizen Suisen Land, visitors can enjoy seeing not only the flowers,

but also the amazing views of the Sea of Japan and the lighthouse at the same time.

It is very soothing to take a walk around the Echizen coast being surrounded

by the sweet smell of the flowers.
