Travel to Echigo Yuzawa with Genbi Shinkasen

This trip happen as we realised that we still have some plenty of time to kill. We want to utilise our JR east pass day (the 5 days out of 12days).

Is a random trip and we are so lucky to board the Genbi Shinkasen!

We use hyperdia to check the train schedule, train/Shinkasen type and duration needed. It give us the clue on how much tine we needed to travel from one location to another. It extremely helpful as we can get our last train back to hotel.

When we board the Genbi Shinkasen, we are so surprise the interior layout and design.
It has various designer’s masterpiece from photograph, art display etc. Each cabin has own setup of sofa seats

We have this importunity to explore Echigo Yuzawa by travel with Genbi Shinkasen. We travel with the JR East Pass, so we are not worry about the high fare between station to station.

We are amazed by the Genbi Shinkasen, it has cafe, various gallery by famous artist, comfortable sofa seats, it even have the special built cabin for children to enjoy the toy! It is really eye opening and we are really enjoying the experience.

Once we arrived the Echigo Yuzawa station, it was evening time. But we manage to have a chance to walk around this city. We manage to spot the great scenery including mountains, small waterfall, onsen corner for leg.

Although this is not ski season, but this city is still very beautiful in her own way!
