Start off your visit on the 2nd (Fri): get engrossed in the history at Northern Culture Museum, explore the activities along Fukushima-gata, then see the interesting displays at Niigata Niitsu Railway Museum, then sample the tasty concoctions at Imayo Tsukasa Sake Brewery, and finally don't miss a visit to The Old Saito Residence. Get ready for a full day of sightseeing on the 3rd (Sat): contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Sanja Shrine, take in panoramic vistas at Befco Bakauke Observatory Room, then snap pictures at Bandai Bridge, then walk around Yahiko Park, and finally take in the spiritual surroundings of Yahiko Shrine.

Plan a trip to Niigata easily and quickly by telling Inspirock to suggest an itinerary.
