Ruins of Fukui Castle
The prefectural buildings are located on the ruins of Fukui Castle where the Echizen-Matsudaira family, the lords of Fukui domain, lived during the Edo period (1603-1867). Now, stone walls and moats remain, and cherry trees along the moats draw many cherry blossom-viewers in spring.
