Salt Factory Sado Kaza Shiogama

Sado salt gathered in traditional methods

The scenic spot "Meotoiwa Rocks" is located in front of Salt Factory Sado Kaza Shiogama. Salt Factory Sado Kaza Shiogama is a salt-making hut in the sea breeze blowing off Nanaura Coast. The history of salt production in Sado dates back to ancient times, when salt making used to flourish in the neighbourhood of the factory. Following traditional production methods, mineral-rich brine taken from Meotoiwa Rocks is evaporated over a wood fire. The flavourful salt can be purchased at Meotoiwa Roadside Eatery. You can visit and see the salt production process.
