In the winter, Tokamachi becomes a snowy wonderland. Every year the snowfall exceeds three meters, and walls of snow, high enough to hide a person walking beside them, take shape throughout the city. Coming to Tokamachi in the winter is a great opportunity to experience an extraordinarily snowy way of life.
This is the official website of the Tokamachi Tourist Association.
You can get information on sightseeing, events, accommodation, and
dining in all areas of Tokamachi City.
Echigo-Tsumari Art Triennale is one of the largest art festivals in the world
and is held once every three years in the Echigo-Tsumari region since 2000.
The Triennale has been held seven times since 2000.
The Triennale provides an opportunity to present projects and initiatives developed
in the Echigo-Tsumari Art Field.
These projects aim to reveal existing assets of the region using art as a catalyst,
rediscover their values, communicate these to the world and find a way to revitalize the region.
