Nagaoka's Echigo Hillside Park is home to an annual tulip festival, which showcases early, mid, and late-blooming tulips in a space of 3,000 square meters. The park is a great place for a family-friendly day out, with barbecue facilities, children's play equipment, and wide grassy areas all available to enjoy.

Adult admission to the park is priced at 450 yen. Children who are junior high school-aged and younger receive free admission.

Getting there

Echigo Hillside Park is located around a 10 minute drive from the Nagaoka Interchange of the Kanetsu Expressway. Paid on-site parking is available, at a cost of 320 yen for regular vehicles.

Buses are also available from Nagaoka Station (Joetsu Shinkansen, Joetsu Local Line, and Shin'etsu Main Line) to the park. Head out of the Ote Exit, and take the New Town Bus via Sekihara from Platform 6. The bus ride from the station to the park takes just over 30 minutes.

I'm an expat who has lived abroad for almost a decade, including 7 years in Japan. I've also visited 44 of 47 prefectures and hope to get to the last three someday! I'm particularly fond of exploring off the beaten path destinations, gardens, and tea houses, and have a real interest in Japan's growing vegan scene.

Beds of tulips are adorable and cheerful, right? I was fascinated with them in the Flower Park of Hamamatsu.
