Niigata Prefecture - Takada Station to Tokamachi Station

This train, which runs along the Sea of Japan, is a perfect getaway: take in the ocean views as you drink local spirits (jizake) and listen to live jazz! At this train’s terminus, the town of Tokamachi is surrounded by a mountain range that is home to many ski resorts and onsen.

There is even a snow festival in February, too! It is famous for rice, which means that all around you can see picturesque rice paddies.
