Profile

Hi there, my name is Nicole Klassmann.
I am currently working as a Coordinator for International Relations in the Public Relations Division of the Fukui Prefectural Government, where I promote the many charms of my current home through social media.

Fukui, where you can see the landscapes and relics of Japan’s past. From season to season, the legacy of time-honoured history and culture lives on through the lives of those who live surrounded by the nature of nearby mountains, lakes, and oceans. The development of Japanese cuisine using the rich and varied ingredients of the land and sea, and the use of traditional arts techniques continues on to this day. Here in Fukui, you can feel the “Zen” in things such as the harmony between humans and nature, stillness, healing, the simplicity of daily life, and uniquely Japanese beauty. How about spending a holiday getting in touch with the history held dear by the residents of Fukui while driving along the coastline of the Sea of Japan?
