One of the best places in Sado to see red leaves and cherish autumn colours in mountains
Sansuke and Okiku, who are reputed to started rice cultivation in Sado, are enshrined at the two peaks of Mt. Ogamiyama and Mt. Megumiyama in the middle of the Kosado area. The southern slopes are known as a spot to see beautiful autumn foliage, and lead to Momijiyama Park. You can walk around the park on a promenade and enjoy views from a viewing deck in the park. Momijiyama Festival is held annually on the last Sunday in October, featuring performing arts shows and events with a sense of autumn.
