Echizen City living with tradition
Echizen City has been a popular center of politics, economics, and culture in the Hokuriku Region and is the place where Echizen’s provincial government headquarters was first established long ago. In the Heian period, Murasaki Shikibu spent her adolescence in this place. Echizen City is a historical and cultural area with Okata Shrine where Emperor Keitai is enshrined, and Hanagatami Park, which is famous for its beautiful cherry blossoms and autumn leaves. The city has been vigorously developing as a Monozukuri City with a wide variety of traditional industries, such as EchiZen Uchihamono, Echizenwashi, and Echizen Sashimono, as well as modern, cutting-edge technology industries.
