What to Expect

Murakami city is located in the northern part of Niigata Prefecture.
The city was flourished during the Edo period as a castle town governed by the Murakami clan.
It is famous for "鮭-sake-salmon", "酒-another sake-Japanese sake", "Tsuishu" lacquer ware, Machiya houses, Murakami beef, Murakami green tea,
Hina doll festival and more!

In this tour we visit several must-see places in this diverse city.

1.Kikkawa: A shop selling salmon products. You will be surprised to see so many dried salmons hung from the ceiling of the shop.

2.Taiyo Sake Brewery: You can sample some of its products like "Taiyozakari".

3.Machiya houses open to the public ( some of them are shops selling salmon products, green tea, blacksmith, restaurant and so on.

4.Iyoboya Kaikan (salmon museum): You can learn why Murakami city became famous for salmon.

Murakami city has succeeded in preserving old-style Japanese houses and you can enjoy the nostalgic atmosphere it produces.

It is mostly a walking tour(about 3-4 km) and we may use loop bus or taxi accordingly.
You can take Uetsuhonsen line from Niigata to Murakami, about 1-hour by local train.
