The port city of Niigata has an association with tourism, but not really one to do with the city itself.
Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Niigata: Yahiko-mura (Yahiko Park, Yahiko Shrine, & more), Minamiuonuma (Untoan Temple, Muikamachi Hakkaisan Ski Resort, & more) and Joetsu (Kasugayama Castle Ruins, Kasugayama Shrine, & more). On the 6th (Thu), spend an exhilarating day on the slopes at Koide Ski Area. And it doesn't end there: stop by Ponshukan Niigata-station South, don't miss a visit to The Old Saito Residence, get up close and personal with brilliant marine life at Marinepia Nihonkai, and sample the tasty concoctions at Imayo Tsukasa Sake Brewery.

To find traveler tips, where to stay, other places to visit, and tourist information, refer to the Niigata trip itinerary planner.

If you are flying in from Singapore, the closest major airport is Niigata Airport. In January, daily temperatures in Niigata can reach 5°C, while at night they dip to 0°C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 7th (Fri) so you can travel back home.
