This campground is set adjacent to Nyuzaki Sea-bathing Beach, which features a fine gravel beach and crystal clear waters. You cannot drive into the campsite, but there is a free parking lot. With the attractive variety of landforms, this spot is not limited to just swimming and camping, you can enjoy exploring the seaside and fishing at the rocky shore, too. This campground is spacious, but there is little shade to provide shelter from the sun, so be sure to protect yourself from sunburn.
Nyuzaki Beach is located in the Takachi area of Sotokaifu. The pebble beach stretches approximately one kilo metre, and the waters are amazingly clear. Some areas are rocky shore, which are known as a great fishing spot. A campsite laid down with turf sits next to the beach, making the combination a perfect place for sea-bathing and camping. Set against the backdrop of Nyugawa Valley, Nyuzaki Beach is situated in a fascinating natural surrounding. At the beach, you can enjoy a wide variation of outdoor activities, including sea-bathing, fishing from the rocky shore, and exploring the seashore.
Heritage and Relics
Monument to British transport aircraft
Shortly after the end of the World War II, a transport aircraft of British Royal Air Force "Dakota" made an emergency landing in Nyugawa of Takachi Village (present-day Nyugawa, Sado City) in January 1946. The villagers of Takachi, overcoming the hatred against British soldiers of former enemies five months before, made great efforts to make a temporary runway, bringing pebbles to the beach with the soldiers. Forty days after, "Dakota" took off safely. A monument stands to commemorate this true story in front of Takachi Elementary and Junior High School.
Shrines and Buddhist Temples Plants
Ishina Seisuiji Temple
According to the temple's book of origin, it was founded in 807. The spring bubbling up by the sanmon gate (the first gate to the temple) is the miraculous water of the inner shrine, Dantokusan, which is also the sacred mountain where monks practise mokujiki. 190 years after Mokujiki Tansei (a Buddhist monk enlightened in Sado around 1600), Mokujiki Gyodo, a nomadic monk, visited Sado in 1781-1789, and reconstructed a Buddhist hall in the area where Mokujiki Tansei practised ascetic disciplines. There, statues of Seated Yakushinyorai (Bhaisajyaguru: the Buddha of healing and medicine) and Standing Jizo (the guardian deity of children) were put up. The big ginkgo tree is Sado City's designated natural monument, and it is worshipped as a ginkgo of fertility, or a spiritual tree with healing effects for gastroenteropathy.
