was first launched in February 2009 to build on Mark Gardner’s original blog site ‘The Yamakoshi Year’ (no longer live).

Since then has developed into the most comprehensive website for everything you could want to know about Nishikigoi from Niigata.

In August 2014 the site was completely redesigned and relaunched (whilst retaining the huge archive of content it already contained) to make it more ‘news’ related, rather than the previous focus on Mark’s blog.

A further update took place in September 2015 which included the migration of the site from Drupal to WordPress in order to accommodate future development strategies. Home Page Home Page
