Tokyo, the national capital, is located roughly 240 miles (386 kilometers) to the east of Maizuru, while Osaka is 55 miles (89 kilometers) to the south.
To see why so many tourists opt for Kyoto as a travel destination, ensure you and your companions spend a bit more time in the many scenic and cultural attractions around Maizuru. If you'd like to find even more places to explore, head to the Old Mikami Family House and Temple Inari Shishizaki in the vicinity of Miyazu, which lays 12 miles (19 kilometers) to the east of Maizuru.
About 20 miles (32 kilometers) to the northwest of Maizuru is Kyotango, a regional center and the home of Goshiki Beach Park, Kumihama C. C. And Shizuka Shrine. Gosyo Inaba-honke and Yuhigaura are more attractions that should be on everyone's list.
The real essence of a place lives not just within its landscape, but also within its language. Taking the time to memorize some everyday Japanese words, sayings and salutations will make your vacation in Maizuru infinitely richer. Why not try to pronounce "Isshoni odorimasenka?" This is the Japanese way to say "Would you like to dance with me?" "Benjo wa doko desu ka?" ("Where's the toilet?") is also useful.
You'll be reluctant to bid "Sayōnara" (farewell) to this unique part of the world.
