Northern Culture Museum Niitsu Branch is a museum of wealthy farmers representing Niigata. There are more than 20 registered tangible cultural property buildings left by the Ito family, a wealthy farmer in the area, on a large site. The main building has a wonderful pond-viewing garden which is the showcase of the facility. The garden was created by Tatami Tanaka - the gardener who restored Ginkakuji in Kyoto and also restored the nationally designated scenic spot Saito Family Bettei Garden in Niigata City. The garden was created in the early Showa period. The Northern Culture Museum also has the Niigata Annex, which is a registered tangible cultural property in Niigata City although it must be said that the Niitsu branch of the museum garden is far superior in scope and quality.
