The port city of Niigata has an association with tourism, but not really one to do with the city itself.
Venture out of the city with trips to Yahiko-mura (Yahiko Shrine, Yahikoyama Panorama Tower, & more), Joetsu (Kasugayama Castle Ruins, Takada Park, & more) and Mitsuke English Garden (in Mitsuke). The adventure continues: enjoy breathtaking views from Befco Bakauke Observatory Room, contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Hakusan Shrine, meet the residents at Marinepia Nihonkai, and make a trip to The Old Saito Residence.

If you are flying in from Hong Kong, the closest major airport is Niigata Airport. In October, plan for daily highs up to 22°C, and evening lows to 16°C. Finish up your sightseeing early on the 24th (Thu) so you can travel back home.
