Welcome to Ryokan Kobase!
Our Ryokan* has a history of 150 years since 1870, and has existed through the Meiji, Taisho, Showa, Heisei and Reiwa eras.
* Ryokan is a traditional Japanese inn, featuring classical Japanese cuisine, rooms with tatami mats, communal baths, and other public areas where guests may wear yukata, and interact with the innkeepers.

Please tuck into our famous Echizen-Gani and Kaiko-Don, featuring the famed male and female Snow Crabs found only in the waters of Fukui prefecture. Our crab cuisine can be enjoyed with our wonderful array of crab dishes, fresh fish, shrimp, shellfish, and other seafood delights from the Echizen region.

Let the magnificent view of the sunset over the sea, and the glow of the fishing-lure fires at night soothe your heart, as you relax in the Onsen (hot spring baths).
