My Impression of Sado Island

sadoI went to Sado Island in Niigata perfecture from 24-28 Feb 06. It was not a long journey anyway. I took Max Toki Shinkansen from Tokyo to Niigata which took me around 2 hours. Then, from Niigata to Sado Island, It took 2 hours and a half by Ferry.

When the ferry nearly reached the island, my first impression of the island was the range of the high mountains covered slightly by snow; It was really a huge and high mountain lying along the seacoast; and I could see some seagulls flying near the ferry. I looked at them and I knew they were too looking at me.

Sado island is really a big island surrounded by mountains, small traditional Japanese houses, trees, beaches and especially Japanese cultures and tradition.

While I was traveling on a road up and down the mountains along with small traditional Japanese houses, I learnt that this island was very quiet and beautiful …not crowded like the place where I am staying now,Tokyo. The road was like a line between the high snow-covered mountains and the sea. It was unique and could not be found in a place like Tokyo.

I told myself I would be there again.

  1. Hi, Mr./Miss Kosal,

    I found your website today, and I am so glad that you had nice time here in Sado. Yes, I am a resident in Sado and happy to know that anybody was impressed by this small island. We have nothing but nature, but it is so beautiful and precious, as you saw. I would like you to visit here again. We are waiting for you anytime. 🙂
