Sabae is one of the largest manufacturing centers of eyeglass frames in Japan. Sabae is also home to a significant chemical and rayon industry.
Nishiyama koen (West Mountain Park) is particularly beautiful in springtime, when hundreds of azaleas trees bloom on the slopes. The effect turns the park into a glorious island of pink blossoms in an otherwise drab industrial city.
The ruins of Mitsumine Castle are located within the city.
