Mt. Kanmuri and Ryusogataki

Mt. Kanmuri (elev. 1,257m), which sits on the border of Fukui’s Ikeda-cho and Gife Prefecture, has been selected as one of the “100 Nature Spots to be Preserved in the 21st Century.” Covered in snow and inaccessible for much of the winter and spring months, in early summer its summit opens up to hikers and proudly proves its worth as one of the top 100 Nature Spots in the country.

Ikeda’s No Plays

Every February 15th, the No stage at Ukan Shrine comes alive with Ikeda-cho’s annual Mizuumi no Dengaku Nomai, a performance tradition that has continued for 750 years and been designated a National Intangible Folk Cultural Property.

Farms and Fields of Ikeda-cho

The sight of farming fields and homes can still be found throughout much of Ikeda-cho. Compost made from town waste is used to restore nutrients to the soil and minimize the use of pesticides to support organic farming in the town.
