Introducing Sado Island

The island of Sado-ga-shima is 35km of the coast of Honshu, facing Niigata. It is one of Japan's largest minor islands and served as an exile place for important figures since mediaeval times.

The main reason to come to Sado is for its remoteness, rocky coastline and natural scenery, small fishing villages and an easy-going pace of life contrasting with a metropolis like Tokyo.
