A small village


After riding out along Niigata's coast we then headed slightly inland towards our destination of Mt Kakuda and passed through a small village at the base of the mountain. In the countryside surrounding Niigata it's quite common to cycle through fantastic old villages where time has almost stood still, only a few new houses inhabit these small villages and most of the houses are very old and sometimes you can see store houses called Kura such as the one pictured above.
