In this video, we head for a 3-day trip from Tokyo to Niigata, a prefecture famous for its high quality rice, beautiful coastal and mountainous sceneries, skiing in winter and hot spring bathing around the year.
We first check out Echigo Tsumari, a rural region showcasing contemporary art installations scattered around its fields, forests and villages, before heading to the remote island of Sadogashima, where we explore some of the highlights it has to offer.
