    No high-rise buildings in the area to 31 stories high but far better thought of in a different building with Hotel Nikko logo at the top of the building there are posting information separately for each direction, such as Sado Island looks so complex I.

    So nice to have free view from 31st floor! Could even see Sado island from there! Very near the Bandai Sushi place BenKe! Both are the stops if you travel by city loop buses which cost only 500 yen!  more »

    It is free to be on the top floor of the Toki Messe Observatory. You can capture presenter Sado Island Niigata City views, on a clear day. It is one of the recommended places in Niigata City.
