Echigo-Tsumari Art Field 2021 Winter – SNOWART which started on Saturday 23 January is launching “The Snowy Wonderland”, three consective weekends of fun at Matsudai Nohbutai from Saturday 20 February. The highlight will be the long-waited Echigo-Tsumari Snow Fireworks on Saturday 6 March. Let’s have a close look at the 6-days of fun in Echigo-Tsumari in winter.

6 days only - The Snowy Wonderland at Matsudai Nohbutai outdoor space

There will be lots of programs using the vast area around Matsudai Nohbutai for six days on Saturday 20, Sunday 21, Saturday 27, Sunday 28 February and Saturday 6 and Sunday 7 March 2021.

The “Giant Makio” will return this winter again. Everyone gets so excited as Makio appears – despite its look it is certainly very popular.

“米偶 (Mai-Gu-san)”, made out of straws, sitting on the snow field softens the atomosphere at once. Let’s enjoy tasting a local delicacy called “anbo” with Mai-Gu-san family.

“Play of the winter” is made to use the vast snow field. Ride on a “gigantic snow slide” which we couldn’t make last year due to lack of snow.

Limited time only - try "Yukimigozen set meal"

From Saturday 20 February, Echigo-Matsudai Satoyama Shokudo offers “Yukimigozen set meal” for limited time. While “Yukimigozen set meal” has been a lunch experience exclusively offered to participants in the official guided tours, we have arranged to make it available at Echigo-Matsudai Satoyama Shokudo for visitors to enjoy as the official guided tours have been cancelled. The Special Ticket holders can even make use of JPY1000 worth coupon to try it!

Yukimigozen set meal JPY1,650  ※”Satoyama Gohan” will not be available until 7 March 2021.

Open until 14 March - "The Snowly Wonderland" at KINARE outdoor space

“The Snowy Wonderland” at KINARE has been running since Satuday 23 January. We have lots of kids enjoying activities in weekends – they get excited when they managed to slide on the snowboard after trying so hard!
