Sado Island: Landscape
Wooden bench, with a view to die for…
At the end of the second day, the weather was getting better, and the sky was clearing up.
Closing the fun yet exhausting day, we went for onsen. M lead us to Hotel Azuma — it’s a regular hotel, but non-guest can still use the onsen facility for JPY 525 per person.
The best part? It was located on a cliff with view to the open sea. The first photo of this post was also taken there.
You can also see the view while bathing in onsen — super amazing!
Another set of seats, with a view to die for…
After dinner, on our way home, we can see how the sky had already cleared. It was beautiful, full of stars.
I try to take another night sky photo — again, not very successful.
The third day came rather fast and exciting.
The good news is that we knew the weather is going to be good.
The bad news is that it’s our last day at Sado Island, and we only have half of day to enjoy.
To maximize the day, we went out early that morning.
Driving along the coast, we made a couple stops to take some photos… and here are the results:
Disclaimer: natural landscape at Sado is very, very beautiful — so beautiful that I think my photos didn’t do justice. But, here goes… I hope you can still enjoy it :D.
After driving along the coast, we went to a museum — Sado Kinzan Gold Mine Museum. I have to say that it wasn’t that interesting, and I didn’t take any interesting photo.
I also took a lot of snapshots when we were driving around the island. There are too many of them to shown here, so I compile it in a video/slideshow.
I apologize for the crooked horizon and if the tones vary from photo to photo. I was too lazy to post-process so many photos, so they are basically straight out of the camera.
You can see the video by clicking here. Hope you can enjoy it as much as I do.
I still have one story left. So, see you again tomorrow :-)…
