We journey through the snowy landscapes of northern Fukui Prefecture in central Japan on the Echizen Railway. The local trains, which are a lifeline for residents, operate over a total distance of 53 kilometers and provide access to many sightseeing locations. Visit the 770-year-old Eiheiji and practice zazen meditation, sip locally brewed sake and dine on Echizen crab, as we train cruise through the natural winter wonderland of the old Echizen Province on the Sea of Japan.
