Togo district is located in east of Fukui city. It’s small peaceful town which population is about 4,000.
The tasteful rows of houses remain the atmosphere that flourished as a post-town long time ago,
and it still keep the beautiful scenery even now.
It takes 3 minutes by car from Fukui I. C. on Hokuriku expressway, and 20 minutes from central Fukui.
Also, you can take JR Etsumi Hokusen line (it takes 15 minutes from Fukui station) and Keifuku buss.
You can easily visit this beautiful country side Togo district.
This is the “Echizen Togo station” of JR Etsumi Hokusen line. It’s unmanned station, but it usual in Fukui.
This is timetable. Train stop here less than 10 times a day‼! It’s also usual in Fukui.
Anyway, Togo has attracted more and more attention as nice sight seeing place‼
Togo district is very near from “Ichijodani Asakura Clans Ruins“which is one of the most famous spot, so you can explore Togo after you visit Asakura Clains Ruins.

Doden river is the symbol of Togo.
There’re some benches on the riverside. It’s really nice to take a rest during cycling and walking.
A lot of flower are blooming along the river. They’re so cute♡
Big carps are swimming in this clear water. You can buy there food in front of “Atarashiya” and feed them♪
At Doden river, some events (Floating restaurant, concert, light up…)are held through year.
“Atarashiya”・・This old house was built in the early Showa era (around 1930), and repaired by local people.
There are old Sake brewers. The oldest one was established sine 1853!! Their sake is really nice because the water here is very fresh & rich.
There’re many temples around here.
Police office and post seemed different from latest ones. They match the old scenery.
