Sabae City Nishiyama Zoo (鯖江市西山動物園)

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.

Review of Nishiyama Zoo

TripAdvisor Traveler Rating
Reviewed:2019/09/27 Im saying very good just because you can go see the red pandas.
I took a quick side-trip to the zoo (which is tiny) but it has a bunch (a dozen?) red pandas in separate enclosures.

There are also some showy pheasants and peacocks and some spider monkeys, but...
Reviewed:2019/12/14 レッサーパンダの聖地
1985年、鯖江市制30周年を記念して、西山公園の中腹に開園した動物園です。日中友好のシンボルとして中国・北京動物園から寄贈を受けたレッサーパンダが毎年繁殖し、レッサーパンダの聖地となっています。レッサーパンダの家では室内でレッサーパンダの愛らしい生態を間近に見られます。無料の小さい動物園ですが、十分に楽しめます。
Reviewed:2019/11/26 西山公園の動物園
西山公園を登ったら、無料で入れる動物園があります。ここで西山公園の有名なレッサーパンダがいます。しかし、今回はみんな寝ていて顔を隠れました。他の動物(猿や鳥)も少しあるから、レッサーパンダよく見れなくても楽しめます。無料だから文句言えませんね。

          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.
