Wakasa is a town located almost in the middle of Japan. Blessed by a rich natural environment, including the Mikata Five Lakes which are registered in the Ramsar Convention on Wetlands, Wakasa is a popular tourist area where visitors can enjoy delicious seafood like Wakasa fugu, unagi, and bigfin reef squid. Wakasa has a long history, with sites dating back to the prehistoric Jomon period, ancient burial mounds, and flourished as a link between the Sea of Japan and Kinai, or five provinces located near Kyoto, the ancient capital of Japan. The old Kumagawa-juku post-station town has also been registered as an Important Preservation District for Groups of Traditional Buildings by the state. With the opening of the Maizuru-Wakasa Expressway in 2014, access from Kansai and Nagoya is easier than ever, and we also host numerous visitors from overseas.
