Echigo Tokimeki Resort Setsugekka


Enjoy Niigata's beauty and cuisine on this resort sightseeing train! You can unwind with luxurious moments while gazing at the ocean and mountain scenery.

This is a luxurious resort sightseeing train that runs through Niigata Prefecture’s Joetsu region. The windows, said to be some of the biggest in Japan, look out upon the dynamic scenery that changes from the ocean to mountains and the rural countryside. The first car is a lounge-style car that faces the Sea of Japan and Mt. Myoko, while the second car is a restaurant car equipped with large tables and relaxing seats.
There are four food courses available, including a French cuisine course that pairs wonderfully with Niigata wine, as well as a Japanese cuisine course that uses fresh seafood brought in directly from the fishing harbors. The lounge boasts beautiful Yasuda tiled floors and a bar counter stocked with local sake from breweries in the Joetsu region, so you can try different ones to find your favorite.
