Travel is so much more than just the scenery, it's also about the words, stories and ideas of a region. Your experience in Niigata will become much more meaningful if you make the effort to try some handy words and phrases in Japanese. An example of a useful sentence is "Isshoni odorimasenka?" (Would you like to dance with me?). One more interesting one to use "Benjo wa doko desu ka?" (Where's the toilet?).
At the end of your stay in Yuzawa, no doubt you'll bid this region a teary "Sayōnara" Rest assured, however, you'll be leaving with memories and photos that are yours to keep forever.
