About Sado Island

Sado island has a great cultural history which you can encounter on almost every corner. You can experience natural beauty and its rich and evocative past. If you plan to come in the third week of August, you will feel the eternal drumbeat of the earth celebration festival headlined by the world-famous Kodo Drummers. It's an experience of transcendental nature. It will blow your mind for sure!
