The port city of Niigata has an association with tourism, but not really one to do with the city itself.
Satisfy your inner culture vulture at Yahiko Shrine and Cave D'occi Winery. Your inner history buff will appreciate Hakusan Shrine and Shibata Castle. Change things up with these side-trips from Niigata: Sado (Sado Steamship & Toki no Mori Park) and Yahiko Park (in Yahiko-mura). There's still lots to do: enjoy breathtaking views from Befco Bakauke Observatory Room, make a trip to The Old Saito Residence, stop by Ponshukan Niigata Station, and get engrossed in the history at Northern Culture Museum.

For ratings, where to stay, reviews, and more tourist information, go to the Niigata attractions planning website.

If you are flying in from Indonesia, the closest major aiport is Niigata Airport. Expect a daytime high around °C in October, and nighttime lows around °C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 3rd (Sat) early enough to travel back home.
