Introducing Niigata, our newest Japan route

Flying from 30 October 2019 to 28 March 2020

Stretching along the western coast of Japan’s Honshu island, Niigata Prefecture is known as yukiguni (snow country) due to its wealth of alpine areas and ski resorts. Beyond the slopes, the prefecture is a foodie haven – beloved by the rest of Japan, yet still relatively undiscovered by visitors. 

From 30 October 2019 to 28 March 2020, choose from twice-weekly flights with Cathay Dragon to Niigata and discover the main draws of the prefecture: snow, seafood and sake.

Discover the alpine wonders of Niigata Prefecture

Incredible snowfall each winter transforms the prefecture into a twinkly wonderland. Swoosh down the spectacular pistes, marvel at snow festivals, and relax in the many onsens. All that activity will certainly work up an appetite. Luckily, a feast of rice, seafood, and sake awaits.
