A few words from our guests

I participated in the Sacred Sake Tasting Event and it was amazing! It was held in a shrine with a nice atmosphere and while tasting different kinds of rice wine and making friends with other participants, you get to learn a lot about the history of sake, the production process, and the “categories” of sake.

Special thanks to Ms Yuss and Mr Abe for providing and holding entertainments not only for tourists but also for locals.
The most interesting sake lecture I have ever heard and read. Peaceful and fun atmosphere, new meetings and other things are waiting for you with the Edge of Niigata.

Edge of Niigata is a much-needed organization to introduce travelers and foreign residents to the unique aspects of Niigata culture! I had never heard of Niigata before moving here, but I’ve grown to love this city. I’m glad your team is sharing the Niigata love globally! Through EoN, I was able to make my own Japanese wind chime while practicing my Japanese skills. I am really looking forward to future events!
