👍👍 It was my first time visiting a sake brewery, very enjoyable. It was nice that the group was small and we could ask questions. Nice quick tour for English speakers. The guide was knowledgeable and well articulated. Had the chance to take some fun pics at the end and taste a large variety of sake f...

👍 I toured the Kakudahama Myokojiyama Tumulus. It was more of a tumulus than I expected, and it was more of a climb than I expected.

👍👍 There is a parking lot on the premises, so it is easy to get there even if you have your own car. The cathedral has a unique twin towers that rise toward the sky, and the stained glass windows are very beautiful. It is open to the public except during Mass, so you can freely tour it.

Niigata-ken Gokoku Shrine

👍👍 It is on the way from Furumachi to the sea. It is characterized by its rectangular corridor and the majority of the precincts being lawn. It is very beautiful and the air feels fresh. I recommend it as a morning walk course.

Minemura Brewery image
Minemura Brewery
👍👍 Before entering the store, there was a disinfectant station, so I disinfected it before entering the store. When you enter, you can sample amazake in another building on the left. It was delicious. From standard items to summer-only plum amazake. I saw a lot of people buying miso because it was a go...

Minatoinari Shrine image
Minatoinari Shrine
Shinto shrine
🫤 There are many wonderful goshuin (reception hours 9:20-16:40). However, I personally didn't like the behavior of the man who dealt with me. Unfortunately, I didn't feel like visiting again. There is a ``Wishing Takarei Inu'' where you spin a stone statue of a Takarei dog while making a wish. The par...

万代テラス ハジマリヒロバ image
万代テラス ハジマリヒロバ
😐 Subjective recommendation level: 80! There is some value in traveling far from Bandai! ! The scenery is amazing. Business hours are until 22:00, which is a bit unsatisfactory. The taste is delicious. However, there are many carbohydrate menus, and considering the location, I thought it would be ni...

👍 This time I visited to see the photo exhibition of Takashi Amano. It's a small museum with a reasonable admission fee of 500 yen, but the exhibits were spectacular, with Amano's works from Niigata Prefecture to the Amazon on display. There is also a corner for Meissen pottery and Chagall. You can ta...

Niigata Learning Center For Humans & The Environment
Science museum
😐 予備知識なしでも理解しやすいよう工夫されている。資料館資料館しておらず、フレンドリーさに富んでいる。有意義なパンフレットも得られる。 しかし一次資料が少なく、全体に甘ったるい構成。当事者たちの惨事と将来にわたって二度と起こさせない誓いに欠けている。 肝心の部分はパネル中心であり、あとは水クイズなどやは...
