Today I went to Fukui Station, which is a major hub of Fukui prefecture, Japan. About 10,000 people use the station every day.
It has two convenience stores and some souvenir shops and gift shops. (※Prism Fukui, a gift shop, closed its doors in May 2023.) It’s mid-sized rather than big, but I like it. I did some research on the local population of foreigners, counting how many I saw in 10 minutes. I only saw two.
The station is undergoing construction work right now. Bullet trains will run from there within several years.
Outside the station there are some model dinosaurs. When I was taking a picture of them, a small girl ran in front of one of them waving with her eyes sparkling.
Lastly, I went to the Café Colorado in the station. This was my second time to go there. It’s very nice and a good place to hang out. When I went in, I was surprised to see a staff member who used to work at another café I often went to. We didn’t talk, but I was glad to know he still works at a café.
