Senkakuwan Bay

One of the best scenic spot in Sado equal to the Northern European fjord

Five small bays stretching about 3km from Himezu to Kitaebisu are called Senkakuwan as a whole. Resembling to the beautiful steep rocks (峡尖) in Japanese) of Hardangerfjord in Norway, the bay was named Senkakuwan (尖閣湾). A series of steep cliffs like 30-meter steeples overwhelm visitors. The surrounding area is a marine park. From the viewing deck at Ageshima Yuen, you can view over the entire bay, and you can enjoy the view from different angles aboard a pleasure boat.
