Little visited and often overlooked, Niigata is a beautiful remote region with fabulous sights, great food and excellent countryside landscapes -deserving much more attention than it gets. 200 miles northwest from Tokyo, the Niigata-Sado Island region offers a very different experience to the hustle and bustle of the Tokaido seaboard.
It is koyo season and time to enjoy the grandeur of nature, the viewing of autumn colors, part of the Japanese culture dating back centuries. The trees clad themselves in brilliant scarlets and golds, offering a grand finale to the year as these beautiful landscapes spread around the Niigata prefecture
Besides some of the best sightseeing spot the tour also includes a ferry ride to Sado Island, bullet train to Tokyo, 2 onsen hotel stays, and 5, yes 5 hands-on experiences, daruma painting, glass orgel making, Japanese drum session, senbei making, and fruit picking. Let’s not forget 2 saki tastings!
Not so quick, as we have added two nights in Tokyo for that big city feel. Here we will be visiting the more popular spots, Tsukiji and Ameyoko for omiyage shopping along with the Ueno Zoo to see the panda bears. On the last day, late check-out and a totally free so that you can enjoy shopping all around the Ikebukuro area.
