Echizen Cape Observation Deck

Magnificent view of the Japan Sea from the hilltop

By Takako Sakamoto    - 1 min read

One of the major tourist attractions of Echizen Beach in Fukui prefecture is its magnificent scenery. And the best place to appreciate it is Echizen Cape Observation Deck. This deck is located on the top of the hill which faces Echizen Beach, and on the way up there is Echizen Cape Daffodil Land halfway up the hill. In mid winter, the view of daffodil flowers in full bloom covering the entire hillside, with the Japan Sea in the background is so dramatic. Since I visited in mid October, I couldn't see these beautiful flowers. Instead, I was rewarded by the refreshing view of the green hill and the clear blue water of Japan Sea. It was just wonderful!

I was born in and grew up in Tokushima prefecture, and have lived in many places since then: Nishinomiya, Kyoto, Nara, Mie, Tokyo, Kanagawa, Saitama, Chiba, Fukuoka and Fukui. I am currently living in Yokohama City. All the places I lived, all the places I visited, I have loved dearly. The historical places where people lived, loved, suffered, and fought - places where I can still hear their heartbeats - mesmerize me. I'd like to retrace the footsteps of the people who lived in Japan a long long time ago, and introduce to you what they left behind on this soil.
