We were sincerely welcomed and provided exceptional help for getting around Sado Island by Homma San, the owner of Green Village. We stayed 4 nights during the beginning of June. Sado is not ready for tourists until late July/August when the beaches have less wind and the crystal waters can be calm for swimming. But Homma San made sure that we saw everything the island had to offer from the barrel fishing boats in south island Ogi Port to the glorious views of Futatsugame and Onigame on the north end. The homemade breakfasts (need to request in advance) were nutritious and delicious, traditional Nippon style with eggs, grilled fish, salad and tea. Green Village rents bikes by the day or by the hour, which we used to ride around the Nibo area and visit the Crested Ibis conservation center. The hostel is about 20 minutes from Ryotsu Ferry Terminal to the south in the Nibo area, which is quite scenic. There is a temple and a museum in walking distance of Green Village. It is also convenient to restaurants, bakeries, and groceries. Our room was a 4-bed tatami dorm that even had a small fridge and flat screen TV. There were plenty of showers and toilets and a coin-operated laundry center.
