The museum is located in Hama-machi, a historic disctrict of Fukui City nestled along the Asuwa River--which is lined with cherry blossoms in spring. Atagozaka is also a five minute walk away. There you will find the Fukui City Atagozaka Sado Art Museum and the Akemi Tachibana Literature Memorial Museum, as well as the Asuwa Mountain Park, where you will find ancient shrines and kofun burial mounds. A mountain steeped in history, at the base you will find the grave of Hashimoto Sanai, a samurai and reformist educator of the late Edo Period.
Fukui Castle once lied just to the east of the museum. Before the completion of nearby Saiwaibashi (Saiwai Bridge), samurai who lived to the south had to take small boats to cross the river.
