Hola. It’s Mr. Wada on duty. I may have sounded like Fukui is not so exciting. Hey, Obama isn’t the only place to visit in Fukui. There is another place where it has been a lot more known for a long time. That’s Tojinbo!
We had a trip to Hokuriku area during the obon holiday. As always we stopped at many places. This time I will share our first stop, Obama city in Fukui Prefecture. I am telling you. It’s nothing politics.
About Obama City
It is a small city in Fukui Prefecture. Well, Fukui itself is small as well (population of the entire prefecture is about 800K). Though Obama City got people’s attention when Mr. Barack Obama became the president. Obama City apparently tried to support and invite him to the town since they felt… sympathy? Anyway it wouldn’t occur.
Arriving Obama City
It looks like a small town. One thing I noticed was this konbini in Obama sells swim rings! Quite unusual for me.
Obama Mermaid Terrace (Ningyo no Hama)
Since it’s Obama (small beach), we wanted to take a look at the beach. Probably a popular beach in town, Obama mermaid terrace.
