 Saba-kaid                                                                                                                         Kumagawa-Juku
Wakasa Kaido and Kumagawa-Juku

The Wakasa-Kaido Road connected the Sea of Japan area with Kyoto via the post town of Kumagawa-Juku. This road is also known as the Mackerel Road because of the fact that the mackerel caught in Wakasa Bay were widely enjoyed by the people of Kyoto, as well as serving as an indispensable ingredient for festive occasions, and large quantities of mackerel were transported along this road. Kumagawa-Juku was an important post town on this
Mackerel Road.

Wakasa Town: A Town Blessed with Water

三方五湖The Five Lakes of Mikata
The Five Lakes of Mikata have been registered under the Ramsar
Convention for the excellence of their natural environment as a waterfowl habitat.

Uriwarinotaki (literally, “gourd-splitting waterfall”) is one of Japan’s Selected 100 Exquisite and Well-Conserved Waters. The name comes from the fact that the water from this spring is so cold, even in summer, that it could split a gourd.

若狭湾Wakasa Bay
This bay, featuring an extensive saw-toothed coastline, is home to many good harbors, as well as being relatively close to Kyoto. As a result, it has been an important area for seafood fishing since ancient times.
