Nishiyama Park西山公園


Nishiyama Park is an urban park in Sabae City, Fukui Prefecture that is famous for its azaleas. The Park has grass lawns, an adventure playground, observation platforms, the Nishiyama Zoo, and a Japanese-style garden. From early April until mid-April there are around 1,000 Yoshino, hill cherry and weeping cherry trees in flower in the Park, making it a very popular place for cherry blossom viewing. When the cherry trees are in full bloom, the cherry blossom is illuminated until 21:00. Nishiyama Park has been selected for inclusion in the list of the Top 100 Historic Gardens in Japan, and visitors can enjoy both the evening views of the cherry blossom and the Park’s other scenic delights. Toilets and parking available (parking is free for the first two hours).

Fukui Main Areas


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.
