Kita Ikki’s Birthplace

Open to the public during the festival of "Minato Ikki"

Kita Ikki (1883-1937) was a leading thinker and socialist, native to Sado. He was born to the Kita family who ran a sake brewery, and his birthplace still remains in the Minato area, close to Sado Kisen's Ryotsu Ferry Terminal. The lattice window with vertical, square laths on the second floor is a subtle reminder of the times in which he lived. During the course of the local festival "Minato Ikki" in late September, a special exhibition on Kita Ikki is held, and the house is open to the public.
