    Opened in 1985, the Sabae City Nishiyama Zoo has made great strides in raising and breeding rare wild animals, particularly the red panda. This zoo is one of the few in the country to successfully breed red pandas. Red pandas don’t like the heat so you can’t see them much in summer, but there are live cameras placed inside and outside the red panda house, so you can see them in all their cuteness.

    Fukui Pref. Fukuishi Yamaokuchou 58-97
    An amusement park located in Asuwayama Park, a lush park with spectacular views 20 minutes from the Fukui interchange on the Hokuriku Expressway. Surrounded by trees and situated on a sloping hill, facilities include a small zoo and playground. The new Happy Jungle zoo building provides a space which animals and people can share, and here visitors will find capybara, marmosets, and other small mammals as well as birds and reptiles. There are also rare animals such as parrots and parakeets protected under the Washington Convention as well as red kangaroos.

Northeast of Kyoto, the ancient Tojinbo Cliffs separate Fukui prefecture from the Sea of Japan in a stretch of land well worth exploring. Water sports and seaside delicacies are available in abundance as the spectacular rugged coastline flattens down into beaches to the west of the prefecture, while inland, Fukui is home to Zen Buddhist temples and historic ruins.
