Mano Kanko Centre

A long-established souvenier shop is the home to historic relics

Mano Kanko Centre is located next to Mano Imperial Mausoleum, and houses a variety of Sado specialties, such as Mumyoiyaki potteries, various sweets, and local Japanese sake. Sado red stones (akadama-ishi) are stones produced in Sado that are highly-prized for their colour, and are displayed at both the Imperial Palace and Ise Jingu Shrine. The stones are exhibited and sold at the Red Stone Garden, scattered with beautifully shiny stones. Meals are available for groups of visitors only, but any visitor can make use of the tea lounge with its view of the Osado Mountains and Mano Bay.
