If you want to see the beautiful Japanese countryside, you should go to Tokamachi in Niigata Prefecture, about two hours north of Tokyo by Shinkansen. Tokamachi is home to beautiful terraced rice fields, forests and ravines. In the canyons, you can enjoy the amazing scene from inside the tunnel, as shown on this page. This region is also famous for its delicious rice and sake. Plus, in the winter you can experience heavy snowfall!
