Feb/29, 2020 Echigo-Tsumori Snow Firewokrs3.1
from 2/29 '20 to 2/29 '20
Echigo-Tsumari in Niigata is known as a heavy snowfall area where the snow depth is around 3 meter every winter.
"SNOWART" is a special winter event held annually at Echigo-Tsumori Art Field, which highlights the beauty of snow country through art. Small LED lights are handed out to visitors at the venue, and they bury the LED lights inside the snow for creating a glowing flower field.
As a main attraction of the SNOWART festival, "Echigo-Tsumori Snow Firewokrs" is held on February 29th. This is a spectacular event that illuminates the pure white snowfield. Repeated firing called "Starmine" fireworks bring a thousand colors to the winter's night sky.
There is also a show by artist Kyota Takahashi named "Gift for Frozen Village" which uses snow blowers and lights to show the snow from a new perspective. Besides, there are a number of food stalls set up selling delicious local cuisine.

This is basically a countryside golf resort, but it has enough attractions for the non-golfer to make the (long) journey worthwhile. These attractions include a spa (with small swimming pool), putter golf, and a really nice (and free) display area/library that is dedicated to the natural environment and history of this part of Niigata Prefecture. I spent hours leafing through the photo collections in the library. The resort has lots of rooms. These can be a bit expensive at weekends, but there are midweek bargains to be had if you look around on the web.

Nice hotel. Check in staff only speaks survival English (I guess enough for check in). Dinner and breakfast buffet is nice, not located at ski park.

High C/P value, awesome breakfast buffet. Good place for casual traveling. The only problem is far from city central and station.

It is a good resort area with a golf course. it allows you to play alone with electric or hand cart. unfortunately, until the end of April, the area is covered with deep snow. During the opening week, it will cost you $50-60. It is a good deal.
Good hotel with wedding setting, and restaurant, with make you happy if the weather is nice as it is on the plateaux of Atema Kogen.
