The port city of Niigata has an association with tourism, but not really one to do with the city itself.
Start off your visit on the 2nd (Mon): indulge your thirst for a good beer at Ichishima Sake Brewery, then explore the activities along Fukushima-gata, and then contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Yahiko Shrine. Keep things going the next day: kick back and relax at Nishikaigan Park, then contemplate the long history of Sanja Shrine, then sample the tasty concoctions at Imayo Tsukasa Sake Brewery, and finally stop by Ponshukan Niigata Station.

To find more things to do, other places to visit, photos, and tourist information, go to the Niigata day trip site.

Singapore, Singapore to Niigata is an approximately 13.5- hour flight. You can also drive. The time zone difference moving from Singapore Standard Time (SGT) to Japan Standard Time (JST) is 1 hour. Prepare for colder weather when traveling from Singapore in December: high temperatures in Niigata hover around 9°C and lows are around 3°C.
