Cherry Blossom & Flower Viewing Spots

Because the Uetsu area faces the Sea of Japan, there are plenty of beautiful spots to view the cherry blossoms and the sea at the same time. We recommend following the cherry blossoms blooming path by starting from the southern areas and heading up north for the best viewing experience!

Sea of Japan Hina Doll Road

Hina dolls were one of the many gorgeous goods brought from Kyoto on ships long ago. Each region still has valuable period hina dolls from the Kyouhou era (1716-1736) and even older time periods. Feel the coming of spring with the sight of these elegant dolls.
