The old buildings of the Niigata Customs House (dating from 1869), the Daishi Bank and the City Hall house the city's history museum, Minatopia.

Newer buildings line the waterfront. For example, the Marinepia Nihonkai Aquarium, with 20,000 marine animals and over 500 species, is one of the largest aquariums in Japan. A large transparent tunnel allows you to walk "in the middle" of the marine creatures. Penguins, sea lions and dolphins also put on a show.

To the south of the aquarium, the Japan Sea Tower and its revolving restaurant offer beautiful views of the city.

The modern part of Niigata

This is the lively part of the city with its shops, restaurants and entertainment venues. In the Bandai Bridge area is the Rainbow Tower, which has a 100-metre-high observation point from which to view the city. A revolving restaurant is located on the same floor.

Also in the modern part of the city, the 125-metre high Bandaijima Building is the tallest building on the Japan Sea coast. Its observatory, Befco, on the 31st floor, offers a 360-degree view and on a clear day, you can see the Sea of Japan, Sado Island and the Gozu Mountains. The icing on the cake is that admission is free.

About 2km south of Niigata station, the city is surrounded by a lake, Toyanogata, around which parks and walking paths have been laid out. Bicycles can be rented there.
