The weather is very nice. It’s sunny. We just took a three hour drive here. So we’re about to start snowboarding and skiing! One thing you have to know about Nigata is that there are loads of ski resorts and I’m just going to be explaining just
the few So what you’re looking at now is the Yuzawa Nakazato Ski Resort. Very good for beginners because the courses are quite easy This is the Ishiuchi Mayuama Ski Resort It’s actually kind of harder than the last one because the courses are steeper And the Iwa-ppara Ski Resort You can night ski here. They also have a fireworks display during the season for like 10 or 15 minutes And after all that skiing, it’s time for dinner! People say it’s really good and the reviews seem pretty cool so we’re going to try it out today! Their food is quite awesome like you can see on the plate in front of you They have a proper kiln where they make pizza. I’m sort of lost for words I just had some lamb, and it was very nice I’m going to have some more! This is the Echigo Yuzawa Station They have lots of souvenir shops here. A lot of these souvenirs are made from rice because rice is one of the main agricultures in Nigata. So you get five gold coins and an ‘ochoko’, or a Japanese cup They also sell cucumbers for a hundred yen, and you can dip miso on it But don’t double dip! And here’s ninety types of salt that you can try tasting They’re actually very delicious! Haven’t tried all of them…yet. And here’s water to keep refreshing your mouth. They even have cosmetics made from rice! So go now to Nigata the one place you should really spend your winters! Thanks for watching and please subscribe to our channel!
