Fukui Prefecture is located in the Chubu region of Japan, on the coast of the Sea of Japan. It's total population is just below 800,000 and it's landmass is quite small. There are several important cultural spots in Fukui Prefecture, including the 500 year old Ichijoudani Asakura Family Historic Ruins, where at one time at least 10,000 people lived, Eheiji Temple, a large Buddhist training complex founded in 1244 and Maruoka Castle, in Maruoka City, the oldest standing castle in Japan.
