House is located in Shibata City in the northern part of the Echigo Plain (Niigata Plain) and is the core city of Agakita, adjacent to the prefectural capital Niigata City. During the Edo period, it flourished as a castle town of 100,000 koku, and even today, historical heritage remains throughout the town. It is rich in tourist resources, including the nationally famous Tsukioka Onsen and the rich nature from the mountains to the sea that can be enjoyed throughout the year. The area is also blessed with fertile land fed by the Kaji River, which once boasted the largest cherry blossoms in the East, and is one of the prefecture’s leading producers of agricultural products such as Koshihikari rice and asparagus. Shibata City is a city where the atmosphere unique to a castle town and the warmth of its people soothe visitors. Shibata City, which has many attractions, will continue to develop with the aim of becoming “Shibata, the most livable city in Japan and the healthiest rural and cultural city.”
