What you'll do

I will take you to the Honcho Market, which is known as the kitchen of Niigata. Because of its hidden location and very local environment, international visitors may not be able to find it and may be uncomfortable going there by themselves. There are fish markets, butcher shop, Japanese sweets stores and so on… You can buy fresh food and Niigata’s specialty and eat it there as it is fresh. “Sashimi” “Sake” “Katsudon (deep-fried pork cutlet on rice)” “Sasadango (bamboo grass dumpling)” etc…are available. Not only food experience, you can also sense the passion of working professionals in the market. We meet up in front of the Niigata Station Bandai Exit Information Center. Then we take a bus together to Honcho area; it's about 10-minute ride. The experience ends at Honcho Market. I help for your travel plan to your next venue.

Shino

I was born and raised in Niigata city and I am a 41-year-old mother of two preschool kids as of 2020. I have experiences of studying abroad and working for a travel industry in Tokyo for several years; I am still working for the industry from home. That is how I realized many positive aspects of my hometown by comparing with other cities and now I would like to introduce these positive things to visitors. Also, I love to meet people from different cultures because I can learn so much from them. Here at Niigata’s home, I have hosted people from America, South Korea, Thai, China, Russia, Hong Kong, Philippines, Laos, Myanmar, Tibet, Germany and even Tokyo and Osaka. So many nice people! I am pretty much experienced and open to new things. So I would like to meet You and learn from You!
