A quiet inlet in an area associated with the Anju legend
There is a heartbreaking story called "Sanshodayu", which tells a story of maternal separation of Anju and Zushio. Tassha Coast is where grown-up Zushio and blind mother see each again and took pleasure in finding each other in good condition (tassha in Japanese). Eye washing jizo statue, which enshrines spring water which healed mother's eyes, are carefully looked after by local people. Tassha Coast, located at a corner of scenic spot Senkakuwan Bay, forms a quiet inlet and has become Sado's representative bathing beach.
