Sado, an island of rice fields, but...

 

 Yes, we also love tasty breads and here in Shimafumi (しまふうみ), which means "taste of the Sado Island", serves varieties of

breads and dishes with creativity.

Look at these selections first.  There are about 30 kinds of breads, cakes and dishes every day.

 The main gate of Shimafumi. Even this exterior attracts customers. It gives customers a sense of coming home.

 In a cold winter day,  piping hot onion gratin soup makes you smile.

Osado mountain range and Mano bay spread in front of you.

 This bakery cafe opened about 4 years ago and since then breads have been actually flying off the shelves!

 One of the reasons of popularity of Shimafumi is the creativity of the owner/baker and young staffs always producing new breads and dishes with carefully selected local and outisde  products.

 Each season, Shimafumi welcomes you with beautiful flowers in the carefully tended gardens.

“ A piece of pure gold ”

Excellent
1 week ago Traveler: James -   Tour Guide: Fujiko

We spend amazing four weeks in Japan, but the two trips on Sado Island we did with Fujiko were definitely our highlight. Fujiko did a great job guiding us and spoke excellent English. Apart from being a caring and humorous person one could tell that she really likes being a guide.

“ Tour of Murakami city (near Niigata) ”

1 month ago Traveler: Ray -   Tour Guide: Fujiko

Our visit to Murakami city would not have been as enjoyable or efficient without Fujiko's help. When I planned a day trip to Murakami city I knew having a language guide would be helpful, but I thought I could navigate through the small city by myself. After spending the day with Fujiko I learned that I would not have been able to do and see as much had I decided not to retain Fujiko's help. Es...

We recently had the pleasure of meeting Fujiko who gave us an awesome tour of Sado Island. After travelling for a month in Japan it is without doubt that I can say that this tour with Fujiko was the best. Fujiko has a great wealth of knowledge and adapts the tour to what you what to do and see. It was extremely easy communicating with Fujiko. A lovely lady! Cannot recommend her higher! Cath Cr...

“ Outstanding "Off the Beaten Track" Tour Guide ”

Excellent
9 months ago Traveler: Neil -   Tour Guide: Fujiko

Fujiko is, quite simply, the best guide we have ever used -- anywhere. She grew up on the island -- and runs a small farm. She knows Sado Island like the back of her hand. She speaks very good English. But, the best part is that Fujiko avoided the tourist traps. She took us to unusual and interesting places - including an impromptu picnic high up in the mountains. That was the highlight of our ent...

“ One of the high points of our trip! ”

Excellent
1 year ago Traveler: Tim/lynn -   Tour Guide: Fujiko

Fujiko did her best to accommodate our atypical request which took us off the beaten path including touring government offices and riding in taxi cabs. She was knowledgeable, flexible, pleasant, personable and timely. Not the usual 'tourist' tour. Knew the area. Very good communication pre-tour (by e-mail). Fluent in English and Japanese (working on French). Highly recommend her!

Soon after booking a day tour of Niigata snd a day tour of Sado Island, Fujiko was in contact with us to find out what we were interested in seeing and our interests. Her verbal and written communication skills were excellent. She provided a list of sites then developed an itinerary after we had provided input. Our itinerary included visiting three farms and picking cherries and strawberrys. In ad...

Our tour guide Fujiko was a blessing for my family when we toured Sado island. Fujiko even surprise met us at the ferry station to ensure we found the bus stop. She and our bus driver Keiki were gracious and knew the island inside and out and she was also able to make a last minute change in our itinerary when we wanted to experience lunch at a local eatery. I highly recommend bookin a tour wi...

“ Niigata Highlight Tour ”

We experienced Interesting highlights of Niigata with Fujiko. Marketplaces, historic architecture, sake tour/tasting and the Niigata City Aquarium. Fujiko did an excellent job of coordinating the tour within the time limit, something we would not have been able to do on our own. We thoroughly enjoyed our time spent with Fujiko. She is an excellent guide.
