Great place to go for stunning all-round views of Niigata and surrounding area, day and night. Entry is free and there is a coffee shop and gift shop at the top, though these close at 7.30pm.

So nice to have free view from 31st floor! Could even see Sado island from there! Very near the Bandai Sushi place BenKe! Both are the stops if you travel by city loop buses which cost only 500 yen!

In theory you should get a fine view of Niigata from the Observatory on the 31st Floor. However, when we visited it was set up for a private dinner so access was very limited. Assuming you have unfettered access this is a must do attraction...More
