Ichijodani Asakurashi Ruin, Fukui

4.1
Founded in 1471 by the Asakura clan, Ichijodani Asakurashi Ruin recreates the world of 16th century central Japan. With a dozen restored houses that showcase everything from furniture to ethnic clothing, the site attracts history buffs and nature lovers. The entrance gate with the bridge over a moat gives visitors a feeling of ancient Japan. You can learn about the economy of a typical Japanese castle, but use a guide, as there are no signs in English. Japanese garden aficionados won't want to miss the well-kept "Lone Japanese Maple" garden on top of the hill.

  • Gently lead to warring States period was nestled between the mountain and the mountain River town where many people lived, recalled.

  • It was one of the famous place in history textbooks and materials always come out, so I went to Fukui wanted to go take a look at where. I thought, as a valuable historical site restoration and the karamon around only slowly in a matter of hours, 回remasenn was the stronghold of the warlords to recreate at that time to come. For about 30 minutes around took two hours, and you can travel you can.

  • Came so near the waterfall of 燕返し origin. Rent was waived for electric assisted bicycles. From here I was able effortlessly cycling uphill until Ichijo waterfall.

  • 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).
  • A gorgeous peek into warring period Japan. the local museum also not to be missed.
  • 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.
