The Echigo-Tsumari Art Trienniale (end of July to mid-September) is a massive and expansive international art festival which has been held since 2000, deep in the mountains of Niigata Prefecture known for heavy snowfall in winter.
The Triennale aim to reveal existing assets of the region using art as a catalyst, rediscover their values, communicate these to the world and find a way to revitalize the region.
For visitors, it’s an opportunity to see a combination of art, including many site-specific works, by a mix of well-established Japanese, international and up-and-coming artists, within a stunning rural setting.
