About Fukui

Fukui Prefecture is "the happiest prefecture in Japan," according to a 2011 study conducted by Hosei University in Tokyo, and it's easy to see why so much joy abounds here in this rural, mountainous region facing the Sea of Japan. Among its most famous tourist attractions are Eiheiji Temple, a leading Zen temple, and the Fukui Dinosaur Museum, Japan's best museum of its kind. Founded in 1244, Eiheiji is the head temple of the Soto sect of Zen Buddhism. Visitors can visit the awe-inspiring religious site, nestled in the wooded hills of Fukui (about 15 kilometers from Fukui City) for a morning guided tour with a senior monk, stay overnight (which includes baths, meals and meditation sessions) or even participate in the temple's active monastery training program.
