Museums, Art Galleries and Resource Centres
Sado Museum is a collection of must-sees including drawings by Bakusen Tsuchida, a Sado-native Japanese-style painter. The first floor showcases the collection of gold and silver mines. On the second floor, the museum houses exhibition rooms on the themes of nature, archaeology, history and folklore, and art and craft. The garden is scattered with rocks of Sado and old Japanese-style houses. You can see precious plants in the garden, too.
This brewery was established around the time of the Meiji Restoration and a small number of its brewers continue to make sake in earnest. The brewers' combined experience, limited dependence on machines and attitudes of utilizing these two aspects when brewing sake, are all based on a natural stance. The irreplaceable water, from a well on the premises, supports this choice sake, called Shinryo. Use of an activated charcoal filter, which usually removes color from the sake, is restrained as much as possible. The strongest selling point of this sake is its“natural” flavor, created by leaving the finished sake as it is. You can take a tour of the brewery, and sample its sake, too.
Sado-no-Kakimochi Honpo produces and sells mochi and other confectioneries prepared only from Sado-produced ingredients, with a focus on individual flavors. The products of Kakimochi Honpo include persimmon mochi pounded with dried Okesa persimmons (Sado's specialty), deep-fried persimmon mochi, yuzu-citrus mochi, yomogi (Japanese mugwort) mochi, egoma perilla mochi and dried persimmons. The products of Sado-no-Kakimochi Honpo are available at Shima Marché on the grounds of Shimafumi on Saturdays and Sundays.
