The second episode features the beauty of Sado Island which is 2.5 hours ferry ride away from the mainland.
It was also once the world’s largest producer of gold, thus giving Sado Island its nickname, “Japan’s floating treasure chest”. Today, Sado Island is a tranquil destination that offers visitors a break from city life. The isolation of the island and its harsh mountainous landscape has kept population numbers small, but it has also resulted in an incubated and unique Sado culture.
