It's finally the end of the year and I feel like the year is going to be over in a flash. And this is the one I got!
Don't miss it! The Niigata Notebook is a handy way to carry your "love of Niigata" with you at all times! For a while, Niigata Notebooks were available in convenience stores, but recently they are rarely seen. However, stationery stores and bookshops still seem to carry it.
This is the first time I've got this diary, and it looks useful as it includes a schedule of festivals and events taking place in Niigata Prefecture, as well as spots for cherry blossom viewing and autumn leaf colouring.
The second half of the schedule also includes a summary of information on fireworks in Niigata and tourist attractions in the city, town and village. Just by using it, you can become a little more familiar with Niigata.
Apart from that, there is also a list of ski resorts in Niigata, roadside stations and direct sales outlets.
Lame cover? But wait!
Some acquaintances said to me, "I didn't know there was such a thing as the Niigata Notebook." I think there are a lot of people who have heard about it for the first time and at the same time thought, "The cover is so ugly! I am sure that not a few of you have thought, "The cover is so ugly!
Right. This Niigata Notebook, by default, has a devastatingly tacky cover... This cover makes it a bit embarrassing to carry around.
But wait, this cover ...
What a surprise! What a surprise, the cover is reversible!
Isn't the back a bit stylish? This is what it looks like when set up.
See! You can carry this around with you, can't you?
So next year, Niigata Repo editor-in-chief Karasawa would like to use this notebook to go around Niigata covering the city. If you have a strong love for Niigata and want to get more involved in Niigata, why not make a matching diary with me?
