Saruhachi Terraced Rice Fields
Pristine rice terraces surrounded by mountains
Although it is located just 20 minutes by car from the nearest shopping area, thatched roof houses still remain in Saruhachi, creating a fairy tale landscape. Terraced rice fields blend in with the surrounding mountainous area, sometimes called the unexplored land of Sado. Rice is irrigated with the clear, natural streams of Mt. Kyozuka (636 meters), water that is still safe for drinking. Cultivated with great care in this pristine environment Saruhachi-grown rice has an exceptional flavor.
