In the coastal areas of Joetsu City and Itoigawa City, you can see beautiful sunsets.
Depending on the weather, time, and location, the position and appearance of the sun will vary greatly, but if you visit the area around Joetsu, you should also visit the coast.
There are many cloudy days during the winter, so if you want to watch the sunset, it is recommended to visit from March to October.
This view also looks great on SNS posts.
Here are some of the superb spots where you can watch the sun slowly descending into the Sea of Japan.
