The Ichijodani Asakura Clan Ruins, about 10 km southeast of Fukui City, are the castle town ruins of the Asakura Clan that ruled Echizen province for five generations spanning 103 years during the Warring States period. A nearly perfect townscape of samurai residences, a temple, residences, and merchant shops was excavated along a street, and has been designated a special historic site and place of scenic beauty.
