-"Ura" in Japanese means "flip side".
So, "Ura-Nihon" can be translated as the B side region of Japan, the areas touching Sea of Japan. It implies the land in the darkness without sunshine with the gusty cold wind from Siberia dropping tons of snow in its long winter. Naturally, the Japanese word is regarded as a pejorative especially by the residents of the region, including Echigo, the old name of Niigata Prefecture. But is it so? "Ura" is indeed the heart and soul of hidden Japan, the place you must not miss if you a connoisseur of traveling.
