Hi! I'm an English tour guide living in Fukui. My profile is here.
Yokokan garden is one of the tourist spots I recommend to foreign visitors.
Why don't you spend a luxurious time at a beautiful Japanese garden near JR Fukui station?
What is Yokokan Garden?
Yokokan is a traditional architecture built in the Edo period, mid 17th century as the villa of local lord.
Although the building was rebuilt one after the WW2, the garden almost shows its original style.
Simple tea-house style architecture, the large pond, calmness are the important features of this garden
I'm sure visitors will relax and feel comfortable.
Only 220 yen per person
If you pay 350 yen, you can also enter Fukui City History Museum located just next to this garden.
