Niigata Traditional Garden Tour

LIMITED TIME ONLY!

Elegance, hospitality, tradition!

We will guide you through the gardens and architecture of the wealthy citizens of Niigata, that prospered in the Edo and Meiji Eras (400-200 years ago). These are great treasures that have been passed down through the generation to us.

Experience first hand the hospitality and warmth of Japanese households, as you drink in the unforgettable autumn colours of Niigata. Take part in the ruckus fun of mochi making, the quiet refinement of a tea ceremony, and the elegance of movement while wearing a kimono.

Amazing traditional live music will also accompany you on this unforgettable journey.
