Nishiyama Park西山公園

Event

A park with a long history extending back to the Kyoyokei, a garden created in the late Edo period by Manabe Akikatsu, lord of Sabae Domain and former member of the shogun's council or elders, to serve as a space for relaxing and refreshment for the people under his rule. In 2006, the park was selected as one of the 100 Japan's top historic parks. Some 1,600 Japanese maples grow on the parks grounds, and Nishiyama Park is a renowned destination for enjoying fall foliage. The park bustles with people in mid-November each year during the Maple Festival.

          around-area-map

          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.
