Nishiyama Park, Sabae

This is a lovely park, known for it cherry blossoms in April, and azaleas in May. There are also a number of festivals held in the park year round. The park also includes a green lawn zone (most parks in Japan don't have grass!), an Adventure Forest, a Japanese Garden, and a zoo. An observation deck near the zoo offers up a beautiful view of the town and Hakusan mountains. When I visited the park in early October, it was just a short walk from the Sabae City Hotel, where I was staying.
