Maizuru is a city in Kyoto Prefecture, Japan, on an inlet of the Sea of Japan. You'll explore the less-touristy side of things at Amanoiwato Shrine and Fukuchiyama City Zoo. Kannonji Temple and Fukuchiyama City Flood Control Memorial are good opportunities to explore the local culture. Get out of town with these interesting Maizuru side-trips: Fukuchiyama (Fukuchiyama City Children's Science Centre, Motoisegeku Toyoke Shrine, & more), Ankokuji Temple (in Ayabe) and Miyama Town Nature Cultural Village (in Nantan). There's still lots to do: explore and take pictures at Japan Maritime Self-Defence Force Helicopter Squadron 23rd, snap pictures at Kitasuisan Bridge, don't miss a visit to Maizuru Brick Park, and enjoy breathtaking views from Goro Sky Tower.
