NIIGATA’S BEST

I have only been to Niigata for a good couple of days and it was one of those moments when you just immediately fell in love with the city. For sure there are more greater things and places that I haven’t seen yet but this trip has made my decision to come back a definite […]

A CUP OR TWO OF NIIGATA SAKE

I’m finally back from Korea! However my adventurous spirit is yet to be filled. Just after landing at Narita, I went straight and purchased a ticket going to the city of Niigata. This time, to visit my friend’s place. I hope it’s as easy as it sounds but starting the day at 3 AM to […]

WALK WITH ME IN MISHIMA SKY WALK

I know not all of us share the same sentiments when it comes to heights. Some find it just straight up dreadful and nauseating when looking down while others enjoy that tingling sensation on their soles. Well as for me, I consider myself the latter.

TAKE A BREAK AND ENJOY THE KAWAGUCHI LAKE
