2 Special days.

Niigata was where Ireland's first match was played in the 2002 World Cup. We also visited on the day before the game to meet our friend Kiyo. Kiyo lives just around the corner from us in the UK and she was visiting relatives in Nagoya while we were in Japan, she came all the way to see us for a day! it was a brilliant day too....


Our second day was Ireland against Cameroon. The city of Niigata turned green white and orange for the day! We were made incredibly welcome and the event was superbly organised..see much more on the t'logue!

    Much of the scenery is inside a tunnel, which is probably why this stretch was so expensive. Built because the PM of the time of the decision was a local boy, I understand.
