Come and Enjoy Bandai-jima!
Welcome to Pier Bandai, where locals and tourists come to enjoy great shopping and dining experiences. The complex, developed under the concept of a vibrant port atmosphere with the cries of seagulls flying above, has some of Niigata’s most iconic places in its vicinity, including the Bandai Bashi bridge and Toki Messe convention hall, and thus offers great access to visitors.
At Pier Bandai, visitors can browse a wide range of Niigata’s brands of rice, sake, fish, meat, vegetables and fruits, as well as coffee and sweets. Stores and restaurants here serve delicious foods and dishes that use selected agricultural produce and marine and livestock products. Enjoy locally grown ingredients. If you are a sushi lover, visit Mawarizushi, a restaurant offering sushi from Sado Island. We have an Italian restaurant for those who love Italian food. If you have a craving for fresh sashimi meals, we have the perfect restaurant for you, too. Where Pier Bandai stands now was once the location of Niigata’s former fish market. The fish market is no longer in existence, but the legacy of the market is still alive in Pier Bandai and continues to be an attractive and favorite venue for both locals and tourists.
