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.

The tour begins and ends in Tokyo, Japan’s capital. It is undeniably one of the planet’s most exciting cities. Enjoy the experience of stays in two of the city’s more popular areas, Ikebukuro, and Shibuya. While an ultra-modern metropolis, there are hidden time-warps scattered throughout the city that offer a glimpse into Tokyo’s past.  

The tour itinerary includes visits to Takasaki, home to towering Byakue Kannon statue, and Shorinzan Darumaji Temple, famous for its round daruma dolls, the mountain resort towns of Karuizawa and Minakami and Niigata, on the west coast, facing the Sea of Japan. This fifth largest prefecture is known for its scenic sites, rice fields, sake, and fresh seafood. And then, we venture to Sado Island, offering rugged natural beauty, cultural experiences, and a variety of mouth-watering culinary delights.

Along with our daily touring spots, we have included a bullet train ride, local ferry to Sado, onsen stay, hands-on experiences, and some of Tokyo’s best shopping!
