Akadomari Folk Museum

A museum featuring the culture, livelihood and festivals of Sado

Akadomari Folk Museum is housed in the Akadomari Sogo Bunka Kaikan (Cultural Centre). You will be welcomed by a parade float called the "Odori Yatai (literally: dance float)", which imitates a festival. The 1st exhibition room introduces festivals from all over Sado, such as deity mask dance. In the 2nd exhibition room, folk materials collected from the Akadomari area will give you insight into the history of the villagers' struggles. There is a special section featuring Kaitaro Hasegawa, a native of Akadomari who was a very active novelist under three pen names: Fubo Hayashi, Itsuma Maki, and Joji Tani.
