Akagame Kazashima Nagisa Park Beach
The stretch of Maehama Coast has a beautiful, gentle coastline. The beach opens out to a scenic park, where gigantic rocks "Kazashima Benten" and "Akagameiwa (Red Turtle Rock)" lie. Just off the Sado's Ring Road, the crystal clear water and beautiful pebbles of the beach await for you, allowing you to have an experience as though you own a private-beach! There is a turf-fitted campsite within the park as well.
Folklore Sea Strange Rocks and Bizarre Stones
Akagameiwa is a big, red stone of iron quartz, which can be seen from a bathing beach in Akagame Kazashima Nagisa Park. The rock has a hollow in the middle, and the shape resembles to parent and child nestling up together. "Once upon a time, when a fisherman in Suizu encountered a turbulent sea, a big turtle appeared, and the fisherman and his boat rode on the turtle's back and returned to the port. The turtle turned into a rock, and villagers named the rock "Akagame". The rock has this folk story, and there is a shrine to enshrine Akagame Myojin god.
Minshuku (Japanese-style Bed and Breakfast)
Ryoso Saka is a Japanese-style bed and breakfast run by a fisherman, standing in front of Suizu Fishing Port. You may enjoy well-established fish dishes and home-grown vegetables and rice, and when spring comes, a variety of mountain vegetables are also served. Fascinating is the traditional atmosphere of a fisherman's house, with a central pillar which has been supporting the house structure for over 100 years, paper doors and sea chests. There is a bathing beach equipped with facilities for camping, and the beach enjoys a great crowd every year.
Minshuku (Japanese-style Bed and Breakfast)
