The reconstructed village in Ichijodani

Fukui

Ichijodani, a valley about 10 kilometers southeast of central Fukui City, was the home of the Asakura family during the Sengoku period, which ran from the late fifteenth to late sixteenth centuries. The Asakuras were military commanders who governed northern Fukui for 103 years. Today, you can see excavated ruins of Asakura samurai homes, temples, artisan studios, and roads, as well as a modern reconstruction of a sixteenth-century village in the Ichijodani area.

Feel history come to life through a series of re-enactments, events, and hands-on activities at the Ichijodani Asakura Family Ruins. A museum introducing the ruins and the area's history is set to open in 2022.
