The port city of Niigata has an association with tourism, but not really one to do with the city itself.
You'll explore the less-touristy side of things at Sekiyahama Beach and Sasagawa Nagare Beach. Your itinerary includes some good beach time at Nishikaigan Park and Urahama Beach. Change things up with these side-trips from Niigata: Murakami (Itagai Beach & Senami Onsen Beach) and Yahiko Bicycle Race Track (in Yahiko-mura). There's lots more to do: get outside with Maze Simoyama Beach, relax and rejuvenate at some of the best spas, stop by Pia Bandai, and take a memorable drive along Echigo Nanaura Seaside Line.

For more things to do, photos, maps, and more tourist information, you can read our Niigata holiday builder app.

Expect a daytime high around °C in August, and nighttime lows around °C. Cap off your sightseeing on the 16th (Sun) early enough to travel back home.
