Landscape around Mt. Asuwa Fukui City

Shakudani stone is abundantly used for stone steps of Atagozaka, Hyakuzaka, and other slopes leading to the top of Mt. Asuwa. We can see old pit sites at the foot of the mountain. Shakudani stone is also used for garden lanterns, etc. of temples and shrines built at the foot of Mt. Asuwa and their blue stone surface creates solemn atmosphere.
