Thrilling Basaltic Cliffs in Tojinbo

Make a Scene in Tojinbo: featured image

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!

Welcome to Obama City!


Tojinbo, Fukui: Stone landmark

About Tojinbo

It’s the international park with a bunch of 25-meter high basaltic cliffs standing. Japanese suspense dramas feature Tojinbo very often with so much dramas and murders.



There ain’t no ropes or anything to hold on. As you see in the photos some people go to the very tip of the cliffs but keep in mind that it’s all at your risk. Watch your step and take nice photos!


Iwaba Cafe

There are some places to rest nearby. This Iwaba Cafe has nice window seats.tojinbo_iwaba_cafe

Cooling down with drinks. This fruits punch juice is so gooood!



How do you find it? It may have scared you off but it still makes it a great place to have a little bit of thrill and chill.

See you around!


Welcome to Obama City!

Obama City, Japan: Obaman souvenir

Aloha. It’s Mr. Wada on duty.

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.

A nice beach in a quiet & peaceful town. We loved it!


Like there’s Hawai City in Tottori, or Usa City in Oita, there are interesting city names in Japan. I’d like to hear if anything like that in your country as well. Please share with us!

See you around!

The most popular souvenir in this city seems to be this Oba-man (Obama + manju).
