Gateway city for the Japan Sea region

Niigata first prospered as a port city trading with the countries of the Japan Sea region, and as one of the nation’s gateways to the world, it developed close ties with neighboring countries. That is why many information signs in the city today are written in English, Korean, Chinese and Russian. Niigata Airport has many international flights not handled by other regional airports, such as to the Russian Far East. Located at the mouth of the Shinanogawa River, Niigata is a historically famous rice-producing area. It has the largest paddy field acreage of any city in Japan, and produces such well-known brands rice as Koshihikari.

Excellent convention facilities

Toki Messe (Niigata Convention Center) is the largest multi-purpose convention facility complex on the Sea of Japan side of Honshu Island, and has successfully hosted many conventions of different types.
Niigata offers a wide range of accommodations, from reasonably priced inns to luxury hotels. In an area of highly fertile land close to the teeming Sea of Japan, this is a veritable treasure trove of foods. With Japan’s most delicious fish, rice and sake, there are so many after-convention dining possibilities to restore the energy of convention delegates. The unique hospitality of this old port-town will make any convention a memorable experience.
