Fukui City in Fukui prefecture is surrounded by a lot of nature (mountains on one side and the Sea of Japan on the other). It is a little more low-key than the huge cities of Japan. However, it is located 1.5 hours from Kyoto, 1.8 hours to Osaka and Nagoya and about 30min from Kanazawa. It is well known because of Eiheiji, the famous Buddhist monastery, founded by Dogen Zenji. Fukui has been voted No.1 place to live in Japan by NHK (Japanese National Broadcast Corp.) in 2011.
We look forward to hearing from prospective future colleagues…
