As we've been introducing many great places in Fukui Prefecture, there's
so much to see and experience here. Today, I would like to tell you about
the charms of Fukui Prefecture and "the 100 hometown views of Fukui".
＊"The 100 hometown views of Fukui" is a collection of 100 of beautiful places
in Fukui Prefecture. The purposes are not only to promote the prefecture to
people in and out of the prefecture, but it's also for the people from the prefecture
to be proud of our hometown. Another purpose of this collection to encourage
the Fukui natives who had left the prefecture to return to the prefecture.
In Fukui, we have many old towns with the history and cultural traditions.
We're surrounded by the ocean, mountains, rivers and lakes,
so we enjoy the fresh seafoods, fish, vegetables that are amazing.
The panel exhibition of "the 100 hometown views of Fukui" was held
on March 15th and 16th at Aossa, a shopping mall near Fukui station.
The photographs and the introductions of the great 100 places
with the best views in Fukui Prefecture were exhibited.
It was very nice to see many of the great places in Fukui Prefecture that
we've introduced in our videos and blogs.
Actually, I just visited the dinosaur museum last week, and I learned some
technical terms in Japanese and English, and the history of the dinosaurs.
Beside the places that are introduced in "the 100 hometown views of Fukui",
there are many other places that are recommendable.
Near Awara hot spring area in Awara City, there is "Awara Onsen Yataimura
Yukemuri Yokocho (Awara hot spring village of food stalls named "steam alley").
In Yukemuri Yokocho (steam alley), there are about ten small restaurants
where you can enjoy a variety of foods such as western, Chinese and Japanese, etc.
Since the size of each restaurant is small that only about nine or ten people can sit,
sometimes customers start talking frankly even with strangers and everyone
in the restaurant ends up enjoying talking to each other.
It might be a perfect place for people to make new friends as well.
There are some hot springs where you can enjoy bathing and seeing the ocean
at the same time. It's such a soothing experience to see the splendid view of
the ocean while taking a bath.
This is a video of a singer/actress from Fukui Prefecture, Ai Takahashi
introducing Fukui Prefecture.
There's so much more to see and experience in Fukui Prefecture, so I would like
to visit the ones that I haven't been yet. I think I will like my hometown more.
Stay tuned for more videos of the great places in the Fukui Prefecture!
