Highlights of Niigata

Explore the history and highlights of Niigata during this scenic, half-day sightseeing excursion.


Niigata, Shirone Kite Museum, Kite Displays

Depart the pier for the scenic, approximate 60-minute drive to the Shirone Kite Museum. Upon arrival, take a guided walking tour of the museum. Along the way, learn about the Japanese tako (kite), said to have originated in China. Originally an upper-class indulgence, the kite was adopted by the masses beginning in the Edo Period, about 400 years ago. These kites can frequently be seen during the New Year's season, and many traditional songs about the New Year include the word, 'tako'. The museum has many kites from all over Japan, China and the rest of the world, with the biggest kite measuring approximately 131 feet (about 40 metres) in length. Shirone is famous for the 'Battle of the Giant Kite', which is held every June and dates back 300 years.


Northern Cultural Museum, Calligraphy, Ceramics, Lacquerware, Historical Documents, Garden

Next, re-board your coach and proceed for a visit to the Northern Cultural Museum. It originally was a mansion belonging to Ito Bunkichi, who lived in the Edo Period (1603-1868) and was one of the greatest landowners in Japan. Today, the museum houses calligraphy and ceramics, lacquerware and documents related to the Ito family's history. The poet, Aizu Yachi, spent the last days of his life in a building which is now a part of the museum complex. Here, you can find copies of his works and documents related to him. You can also take a stroll through the garden, which features a big pond.


Befco Bakauke Observatory Room, Panoramic Views over the Sea of Japan and Sado Island

Next, re-board your coach and head to the Befco Bakauke Observatory Room. Built in 2009, the Observatory is approximately 410 feet (about 125 meters) in height; one of the tallest observatories on the coast of Japan. From the top of the observatory, take in wonderful panoramic views (weather-permitting) over the Sea of Japan and Sado Island, one of the largest islands in Japan. Tourists come from all over the country each year to visit Sado Island, which is rich in natural beauty and historic monuments. At the conclusion of your visit, re-board your coach and commence the short drive back to the pier.


Please note: This tour involves a moderate amount of walking for approximately 0.75 miles (about 1.2 kilometres), at times over uneven surfaces, with a few steps to negotiate to get on/off the coach, ten steps at the Northern Cultural Museum and 20 steps at the Shirone Kite Museum. This tour is not suitable for guests with limited mobility and guests who utilise a wheelchair. Lightweight, comfortable clothing with flat, closed-toe walking shoes and sun protection are recommended. Guests must be at least 21 years old to be served alcoholic beverages. The view from the Observation Room is weather-permitting. The Shirone Kite Museum is closed on the 2nd and 4th Wednesday of every month. The tour sequence may vary.
