Echigo-Tsumari

tr3

The Echigo-Tsumari Art Triennial is a modern art festival, held every three years in the rural Echigo-Tsumari region of Niigata Prefecture. Contemporary art works by many artists from across the world are exhibited across the 760 square kilometre large Echigo-Tsumari region during the triennials, and many of them remain in place between triennials, making a visit worthwhile at any time.

Besides the art exhibits, the Echigo-Tsumari region attracts with its rural landscape of terraced rice fields, forested hills and small villages. It is a place to see ‘satoyama’, the traditional Japanese lifestyle of humans in harmony with nature.
