     Ichijodani Asakura clan renowned scroll paintings from Ohno! It is the scenery of the countryside around large urban areas had once, now dotted with farms in the river. But here are a lot of pillar Foundation, has been reproduced and save as settlement traces at the time. House of 禄高 family and low family is divided across the road, the difference, such as the size of the area of the site, Garden, and House is evident, is a marked contrast. Tourists can enjoy, so that partially houses honoring the life of bygone days can be reproduced.  In a very good store we admire. Center here is still in the Asakura Family site in the South-East side of the Valley. And hold a marvellously see karamon. West entrance, is a landmark.  Elevated site overlooking this spacious and tranquil site, dreams of glory of bygone days and hideout after the far beyond the historical feelings not can comprehend the emotion is one. Just settling against the Asakura Family five generations you end of main is not should be, had swallowed rival warlords era is pathetic.

    Area only reasonably slowly... come to me like too many times, is the former site of the glory of the Asakura clan in Echizen, vast areas are maintained in clean and all in 1, 廻rou or not, so a stroll. It is already 10 years passed from the white dog appeared in COMMERCIALS for example mobile company was born here if at least so, starring Chi-kun, that Hey,-. Big Mon is Hey, Dad dog itself seems generations have changed, but as the dog image completely unchanged, and stupid like too free with scandal 10 years endured long CM I guess.... The fullness of the heart!

    Early in the morning, still don't see tourists who visited. Since restored town shops were still closed. Anyway around the ruins are in good condition and, if it was like golf. Very beautiful place, the quiet was promptly Asakura said Bon Jovi. From Eiheiji is 15 minutes or 20 minutes by car.

    I can't understand why this place isn't mobbed with people . Thankfully it's not. Really beautiful, natural location, and no kiosks or tourist schlock. Restorations really well done. And a place of incredible historical significance- once home to a whole city rivaling Kyoto in size until Nobunaga burned it to the ground!

    This was a very nice place to go back in time on. The place was almost empty when we were there, my companions and three other elderly couples. We rented two samurai armors for half an hour(500 yen, only coins) which was the highlight of the trip. The elderly couples came by while we were posing and asked if they could take photographs with us, which was fun. Other than that, this place has a reconstructed town street, houses and more, which costed around 250yen to get inside to. After that we took a stroll in the beautiful valley over to another set of ruins, where we fed some fish and turtles, saw a crow snake going all out after a frog, and more. We travelled from Kyoto to Fukui, and took a taxi from there, three train tickets costing 26000 yen both ways, and another 5600 yen for the taxi. When we were about to leave three buses with tourists came by. After chatting a while with one of the tour guides he mentioned they were from Osaka, where one could order a trip by bus to Ichijodani, which likely would have been much cheaper. The only drawback I have with this place is its location, although knowing one could take a bus from Osaka would have made it easier.

    The mannequins were really well done and helped visualize their lifestyle at the time. The staff was super friendly. We walked 15-20 minutes from Ichijodani station and took the bus back to Fukui (they did accept our JR rail passes).

    Although restoration area is part theme park is not in it's not. Interest in history and if you have some prior knowledge and imagination, reasonably funny. Volunteer guides it is caught, or catch the bus on the way back, you turn around and threatening, but was eventually rated Guide and the bus also caught in the room.
