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. 

Located nearly 200 miles northwest from Tokyo, the Niigata-Sado Island region offers visitors a very different experience to the hustle and bustle of the Tokaido seaboard. 

Come along and join our leisurely paced tour that begins with 2-nights in Tokyo and then on to Niigata and Sado Island. We make our way back to Tokyo for the remaining 2-nights. 

So much to see and do on this springtime tour, the Bunkyo Azalea Festival, Ameyoko Shopping Street, Asakusa, 2 fish markets, Teradomari and Tsukiji, bullet train ride, Tarai boat ride, 4 hands on experiences, 2 ferry rides, sake tasting, Shibuya Sky, a free day for all that required omiyage shopping, and TeamLab Borderless, a world of artworks without boundaries, a museum without a map.
