Niigata

3.6
The port city of Niigata has an association with tourism, but not really one to do with the city itself. Lying on the northwest coast of the island, Niigata stares out at Sado Island, a place rich in history, nature, and traditions. Most international visitors use Niigata as a stepping stone to reach Sado, with the city having a good transport system, linked up to other major cities, and ferries running to the island in the Sea of Japan. Those who stay a little longer will be doing so to explore the attractions along the banks of the river that runs through town, including some handicraft shops, local museums, and eateries. Niigata is in Niigata Prefecture. Explore the family-friendly attractions of Niigata and add them to your vacation plans using our Japan trip planner .
