Fukui city in Fukui prefecture is surrounded by a lot of nature (mountains on one side and the Sea of Japan on the other). The city is more ‘low-key’ than the mega cities of Japan. It has however, easy access to two major airports and is located 1.5 hours from Kyoto, 1.8 hours to Osaka and Nagoya and about 45min from Kanazawa. It is well known because of Eiheiji the famous Buddhist monastery, founded by Dogen Zenji. Fukui placed 1st place amongst Japan’s other 47 prefectures as the “Best place to live” by NHK (National Japanese Broadcast Corporation) in 2011.
