Sado Island is located off the coast of Niigata Prefecture about 40km away. Its circumference is 280km and encircled by the Sea of Japan.
It offers diverse coastal scenes depending on places, seasons, weather and so on.
These are the several pieces of photos I'd like to share with you for now. Please enjoy!
