Published on 06.07.2016 Located in the centre of Fukui prefecture is Sabae city, adjacent in Fukui city in the north, and Echizen city in the south. Sabae city has a population of about 70,000 people.
The optical glasses made in this city make up more than 96% of the domestic share, in addition to more than 80% of Japanese lacquer wares, and textiles characterized by Ishida stripe are the three major industries in this city. Many people in Sabae city are related to these three industries.
In Sabae city, there is an about 300-meter road of canola blossoms along the embankment of the Hinogawa river. Along the river, there is a park where the Sabae canola blossom festival takes place in April every year, where not only beautiful mustard colour rapeseed flowers, but also dishes using Sabae canola can be enjoyed.
Canola flowers of this city are called Sabae canola flowers, and they were first made by by cross-breeding two different kinds of canola flowers. They have brilliant colour and they are also used in the manure for the cultivation of Sabae Nabana rice. They can also be cooked nicely by broiling or in a stir-fry.
Eco farm Funaeda is one of the other places where blooming canola flowers can be enjoyed. After harvesting rice in autumn, canola flower seeds are planted in the field, and in spring, canola flowers come to full bloom. That mustard colour of the flowers tell people living there that spring has come to Sabae city. The canola flowers are plowed in the field, and that’s how they are used as manure to make genuine Sabae Nabana rice as mentioned earlier.
Sabae city functioned as a gate city during the Kamakura era.. In 1889, Sabae began as Sabae town when Japanese government first started using the words “city,” “town,” or “village” to divide prefectures. In 1955, two towns including Sabae town and five villages were unified to form the present day Sabae city.
You can enjoy the mellow yellow spring sceneries of Hokuriku area by looking at the beautiful mustard coloured rape flowers and diesel cars that run through them.
