The port city of Niigata has an association with tourism, but not really one to do with the city itself.
Deepen your sense of the past at sights like Yahiko Shrine and Akatani Cycling Road. You'll discover tucked-away gems like Shingu Kumano Shrine Nagatoko and Niigata Prefectural Government Memorial Hall. Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Niigata: Kitakata (Ganjoji Temple, Yamatogawa Sake Brewery Northern Climate Museum, &more), Tokamachi (Tokamachi City Museum, Ehonto Kinomi Museum, &more) and Eirinji Temple (in Uonuma). There's still lots to do: take an in-depth tour of Niigata Prefectural Museum of History, admire the striking features of Rinsen-ji Temple, take in the spiritual surroundings of Untoan Temple, and pause for some serene contemplation at Catholic Niigata Church.
