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.

“ Excellent guide ”

Fujiko made our Niigata tour, though only for a day, very memorable. She took the extra mile to grant our request to visit a nearby place which was not included in the itinerary. She has good command of the English language and communicating was a breeze. I highly recommend her if you need a guide in Niigata.

Fujiko:

Dear Hermie Thank you very much for writing an encouraging review. I also had a wonderful time with you visiting beautiful places and tasting delicious seasonal fruits.! Please come one month late next time to fully enjoy autumn colors! I hope you will have another memorable tour when you visit Japan next time. Fujiko

“ Sado Island adventures ”

A typhoon was approaching Niigata the day before we were meant to leave on the hydrofoil to Sado. Fujiko-san happened to be in Niigata and we meet and were comforted by her assessment. Took the ferry the next morning under calm conditions and spent a really nice day with Fujiko. Saw the Toki’s, ate great Soba and apples, picked persimmons and figs off a tree. Visited a famous sale brewery that makes sake for Nobu! Stayed at a recommended Minshuku for the night as the wind was picking up. A nice day overall! The next day, we visited old fishing village, a traditional bamboo craft artisan and a really amazing temple with giant thousand year old cedar trees. Had coffee and sandwiches at a really beautiful cafe overlooking by now a raging sea. Overnight at a really nice Minshuku with baths. ... read more

Fujiko:

Dear Danny san Thank you very much for writing such a detailed tour review! Yes, we were lucky enough that we didn't have to change tour itineraries because of the typhoon. It's a lot of fun for me to bring my guests completely rural and off-the-beaten-track places and make them smile. There are uncountable places in Japan where you can find unique recipes or ingredients so please enjoy your culinary adventure! Fujiko

“ Sado & Murakami tours ”

We a party of 6 really enjoyed our 2 days Sado and 1 day Murakami tours with Fujiko very much. She really adapted to our requests and even gave us surprises that enhanced our expectation. A very knowledgeable experienced guide and speak good English. We highly recommend her to be your guide.

Fujiko:

Dear Albert san Thank you very much for writing such a wonderful review of the tours. We could weather that powerful typhoon and visit places under autumn blue sky! Please enjoy the rest of your stay in Japan and say hello to everyone from Sado. Fujiko

“ Highly recommend Fujiko ”

Fujiko's English is very good. She is very experienced and knowledgeable about Sado and knows everyone on the island. She also has a very fun personality. We couldn't have asked for a better guide. She is a good friend to us now. Highly recommended.

Fujiko:

Dear Les Thank you very much for writing a review so fast!! It was a lot of fun for me guiding you and talking with Shukunegi locals. I like doing something which surprises my guests a little but you also surprised me! Thank you very much. The weather stays good for a few days and I'm sure you're going to enjoy strolling around Kanazawa city tomorrow. Yes, we are friends now and I'm so happy! Please stay healthy and happy and I'll see you again. Aloha. Fujiko

“ Memorable Trip to Sado ”

We were so happy and fortunate to have had Fujiko-san as our guide and Kei-san as our driver in Sado - they truly made our trip special and memorable for our whole family. Typically we don't like guided tours because they are often canned and sterile, but the tour with Fujiko san was the complete opposite--very personalized, unique, and special throughout. Highlights are too numerous to list but included: delicious local fruit, toki watching in the wild, sharing food/drink/conversations at a beautiful rustic mountain villa (loved our picnic lunch!! suica!! somen!!), local festival with dancing/drumming, unearthly geological formations, and just the overall scenic drive through mountain/sea/sky/valley... We cannot thank her and Kei-san enough!!

Fujiko:

Dear Satoko san Thank you very much for writing such a wonderful review of the tour. It's not just my itinerary planning and guiding but Kei san and local people who made this whole tour memorable for you. I think guiding is sometimes connecting people and share a wonderful once-in-a-lifetime events. Luckily this time you could see shrine festival with deer dance and taiko drumming and that's what I'd like foreign tourists to see if they have a chance. Kei san and I will work hard to make our guests happy and take them to unexpected places because Sado has a lot to offer for tourists. Kei san and I were happy to meet you and we hope you stay healthy and happy! If you miss toki, please come back anytime! Domo Arigato!! Fujiko
