十日町産業文化発信館 いこて

Enjoy local dishes and sweets at IKOTE, a café-restaurant set amongst the Echigo-Tsumari Art Triennale, one of the world's largest international art festivals.

Located in Tokamachi, IKOTE was established as a café-restaurant during the 2015 Echigo-Tsumari Art Triennale. This unique two-story wooden structure draws inspiration from "kamakura" (snow huts), an icon of “snow country” Niigata. It was meticulously crafted using traditional construction techniques from the region, and bursts with the warmth of wood and a liberating openness. Within these cozy walls, IKOTE serves up delectable dishes inspired by the area's rich culinary heritage, utilizing the freshest seasonal ingredients loved by even small children. Journey into the heart of Niigata’s regional flavors, and discover treats you can savor nowhere else.
