Ryokan (Japanese-style Inn)
Founded in 1912, Hotel Shiiya is the longest-established hotel in Ryotsu, which is nestled at the side of Lake Kamo. The entrance has a large, red parasol, used for outdoor tea ceremony, that evokes a traditional Japanese atmosphere. Flower arrangements dotted around the hotel, among other small touches, offer a sense of hospitality. Generous hospitality is also present in the meal service, which showcases the tastes of Sado with fresh seafood and fruit, among others. Ryotsu Onsen (hot spring water) Bath, known for its skin-beautifying effect, is also popular.
Ryotsu Catholic Church
Christianity is considered to have been brought to Sado first in the Edo Period (1603-1867). Ryotsu Catholic Church was founded by a French Christian missionary, Fr. Drouart De Lezey. It was burnt down once in 1883, but was reconstructed by a missionary, De Noailles, in 1887. The church building was designed by Father Papino, who designed many churches in Japan.
Shrines and Buddhist Temples Noh Stages
Nagae Atsukushihiko Shrine Noh Stage
The shrine's tutelary forest is located in the middle of a vast rice field to the south of Nagae River, and its lion-dog statues standing in the paddy are an impressive scenic feature. Established in the early 9th century, Nagae Atsukushihiko Shrine is one of Sado's nine shrines included in the Engishiki Register. After being moved, the current buildings are said to have been constructed in 1714. This shrine houses the tutelary deity for the Kamo Clan as well as a god of mines that used to be enshrined at Mt. Kinpoku. Within the shrine compound, a Noh stage with a quaint thatched roof stands with its left side facing the main hall. The stage is comprised of a main stage area and a rear stage area, and the passageway connects the stage and the room behind the curtain. Estimated to have been built between 1764–1780, this Noh stage is thought to be a valuable example of few pre-modern structures on Sado, and is designated a City Cultural Property.
