I like that this museum is very educational about dinosaurs, and it's very interactive. There are displays where you can touch surface textures, fossils assembled together, and informative games for children to play. Families must go here when visiting Fukui!

This is like a small open air exhibit of the Fukui Dinosaur Museum, with three animatronic dinosaurs, detailed explanations in English and Japanese, and sample dinosaur footprints. Seems to always be popular, with people taking photos. A great and free open air exhibit in front...More

Area now outside the station much improved. The animated model dinosaurs are good to look at and have some interesting explanations in English. Worth a look at if around the station.

It is located directly in front of the station. They built them here because of the famous dinosaur museum which is located in Fukui prefecture, around an hour drive away.

These detailed animatronic dinosaurs seem to have found a permanent home on the west side of the station (contrary to the TripAdvisor map, which currently shows it on the east side). Anyway, it is difficult to miss. Always popular with people, often with children, taking...More

We went to the RR station to check out the animatronic dinosaurs there. The sauropod that was named Fukuititan Nipponensis, b/c it had a little bit longer metacarpal. Are they sure that wasn’t just an individual difference? Kind of cute as they also named another...More

Three large, well-made animatronic dinosaurs, representing three species discovered in Fukui. They all move and roar, and are great for photos. At the moment they are on the west side of the station, but apparently will be moved to the east side later for their...More

Three lifelike moving and roaring models outside the station. Have explanations in English and are good for photo opportunities. Marred a bit at present by local improvement works.
