Delicious, healthy food and long-lived people

Fukui is renowned for the good health and longevity of its citizens. This is due at least partly to the wide variety of healthy food available in the region, and to the city's gourmet culture. Here they enjoy fresh wild vegetables in spring, Echizen sea urchins in summer, Koshihikari rice ? the most famous in Japan ? in fall, and Echizen crab and oroshi soba noodles in winter. Tourists can enjoy hands-on experiences of traditional culture and customs such as zen meditation at Eiheiji Temple, fixed-net fishing, soba making, and ceramic throwing. Fukui is also close to the Ichijodani Asakura Clan Ruins, the remains of an old castle town, and to the thatched houses of Shirakawa Village, a World Heritage site.
