  • Covid-19 Update - Reopening of Ukiyo on the 7th of January 2021

    Dear Guests,


    Thank you for visiting Ukiyo's website. Due to the spread of the new coronavirus infection in Japan, a state of emergency has been issued in and around Tokyo. A warning has also been issued in Niigata Prefecture, where Ukiyo is located, and it is required to refrain from moving inside and outside the prefecture. Therefore, even those who live in Japan may not be able to respond to visits from areas where the infection is spreading. Sorry. For tourists from overseas, please wait for a while until you can enter the country. It is a difficult situation all over the world, but we will continue to do our best so that our
    customers can use it with peace of mind.


    Thank you for your cooperation.
