A hotel with long-standing traditions and a distinctive character: Hotel Mancho
A long-established hotel located at the seaside in Aikawa, Hotel Mancho touches the heart of travellers.
Claiming the wealthiest farmer in Sado as an ancestor, Hotel Mancho was established in 1950. It stands at the seashore in Aikawa, facing the setting sun and the fires lit on boats to lure fish at night. Dishes are prepared from rustic seafood and the riches of the soil by chefs with delicate techniques. The in-house art gallery displays many exhibits, including Buddha statues that have been collected over generations, and the writings of three people with "shu" in their name (Katsu Kaishu, Tesshu Yamaoka and Deishu Takahashi), who are famous for their superb handwriting and lived at the end of the Edo Period (19th century). Hotel Mancho is situated close to Sado Kinzan Gold Mine and Kasugazaki, and offers opportunities for a variety of activities.

Shrines and Buddhist Temples Noh Stages
Kasuga Shrine was established in 1605, in the Aikawa Kasugazaki area, by Nagayasu Okubo, a former Noh actor and Deputy for Sado (later the first Commissioner of Sado). It was transferred to where it now stands in 1619. The Noh stage was built in 1645, and a Noh performance was offered in Sado for the first time at the shrine's festival. The present-day stage was conveyed by Suwa Shrine in the Hamochi Takidaira area, and relocated in 2006. This happened thanks to the passion of local residents who took the opportunity to mark the 400th year since Kasuga Shrine's establishment. Various events, including bonfire Noh performances held several times a year, take place in this shrine.
