Up to now, more than eighty percent of dinosaur fossils in Japan have been discovered here in Fukui Prefecture. This dinosaur's image was also recreated from the fossil remains which were discovered in Fukui. As a result of the study, this dinosaur was found to be a new species of meat-eating dinosaur from 120 million years ago, and was named Fukuiraptor.
The landscape in the background is Tojinbo Cliff facing the Sea of Japan. This surreal cliff has been designated as one of Japan's natural monuments.
