Mention Minami-Uonuma in Niigata Prefecture, and rice will come to the mind of most Japanese. Minami-Uonuma Koshihikari is famous as Japan's top brand of rice, prized for its exceptional taste. When it was suggested that restaurants in this town make their biggest rice bowls made with Minami-Uonuma Koshihikari, top-class chefs rose to the challenge, offering their own versions of Majidon, or "serious" rice bowls!

The “GALA Yuzawa Snow Resort” has excellent accessibility! It’s only 1 hour 15 minutes from Tokyo, with direct access to the station!Read Later
Among all of the available ski resorts in Japan, we would like to recommend “GALA Yuzawa Snow Resort,” an exceptionally easy-to-access ski resort that is only 1 hour and 15 minutes from Tokyo. The facility is, of course, a great place to ski or snowboard, but it also offers attractions that anyone can enjoy, such as beginner-friendly snow parks and snow-play corners, as well as sledding slopes. As the resort is not near any large city centers, once guests arrive by train or Shinkansen, the primary mode of travel is by bus. However, the GALA Yuzawa Snow Resort has direct access to a Shinkansen station, which makes it a very convenient access point for travelers!
