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.

Located near Nishisabae Station, and famous Nishiyama Park, Sabae City Hotel is a convenient place to stay in Sabae city. In fact, it's the largest in town, and is host to numerous wedding parties. The hotel has a very nice Italian restaurant, Il Vigore, on the 8F, and a simple, homey izakaya on the 1F, Yoshimitsu. There is also a cute little shop, just off the lobby, that sells very tasty puddings. Rooms are small but clean, and reasonably priced. Service is friendly, and staff can speak some English.

Known for the splendor of its main gate, Josho-ji Temple is the head temple of the Shinshu sect, and the biggest temple in Sabae. The gate is gorgeous; I felt that I could have stood there for hours looking at all its carvings, especially the dragon.
