Ryōtsu & Around
Sado's main hub, Ryōtsu is a low-key port town. The main street is lined with amenities for travellers, but there is little in the way of sights. Head inland, however, and the townscape gives way to rice fields sprinkled with wooden farmhouses and ancient temples. With buses running from Ryōtsu to most other areas on the island, this is a convenient place to base yourself.
