Echigo Hillside Park


A park full of seasonal blooms and exciting playground equipment! Play with boundless energy under the expansive blue sky!

Covering an extensive 400-hectare area, Echigo Hillside Park offers clear blue skies, verdant lawns, and winter snowfields. Here, you can engage in a variety of sports and recreational activities.

Discover the joy of sports and recreation in the park, including the immensely popular "Fluffy Dome," a mountain-shaped white trampoline. Dive into the athletic and water playgrounds, and explore the park on a whimsical car-shaped bicycle.

Immerse yourself in the beauty of nature as the park showcases seasonal flowers like liverleaf, tulips, roses, and cosmos. Experience life in rural Japan, observe living creatures, and learn about the nature, food, and culture of Echigo.

Cap off your day with a visit to the park's cafes and restaurants. Why not savor a delightful lunch or barbecue after a day of leisurely exploration?

In winter, the park transforms into a snowy wonderland, featuring a 150-meter-long sledding slope, cross-country skiing, and a snow playground suitable for all skill levels, both children and adults alike!
