Living and Travel in Japan

Postby project » Sun Aug 31, 2008 5:15 am

Living in Chubu means we have probably the best access to the outdoors of anywhere in Japan. To the south and east we have the Pacific Coast, to the north the mountains of Gifu and Nagano, and to the west we have the Japan Sea coast. From central Chubu the easiest access would be the coast of Fukui prefecture.

Around one and half hours from Nagoya by car on the Hokkuriku expressway, or the same time by train on the Hokkuriku honsen (main line) will see you in Tsuruga city, at the head of the Tsuruga Bay, itself part of the larger Wakasa Bay. From here you can head north to the Echizen coast, or west into the Tsuruga Peninsular or down the coast further.
