Sakai

Trip Planner Asia  /  Japan  /  Chubu  /  Fukui Prefecture  /  Sakai
Sakai combines a dramatic coastline with pastoral scenes and historic sites. With the oldest standing watchtower in the country, the city's ancient castle represents one of the main cultural attractions of Sakai, in addition to preserved districts of Edo Period homes and storehouses. The rice paddies and lavender fields on the outskirts of the modern city give a taste of rural Japan, while hot spring resorts add a luxurious air and generate a good deal of tourism in Sakai. With our world travel planner, Japan vacations can be built around trips to Sakai and other destinations in Japan.

Where to stay in Sakai

A modern agglomeration of what were once multiple towns, the city of Sakai has many centers. Even so, it offers few places to stay, with just a small number of hotels close to the castle and over by the coast. The established town of Fukui to the south possesses a greater diversity of places to stay, including a number of standard hotels and traditional ryokans. The hot spring resort town of Awara, just north of Sakai, has a wealth of ryokans with onsite onsens.
