    Nigata Pref. Sadoshi Ogimachi 1935
    This tourist boat dock in Ogi Port is a four-minute walk from Sado Kisen. It is popular for its taraibune (wash tub boat) rides, one of Sado's key tourist attractions. The relaxing boats, which seat up to three adults, can be paddled by an oarswoman or by the passengers themselves. While the boats might appear unstable, they are surprisingly hard to capsize, making riding one like taking a leisurely stroll on the ocean. The dock also offers motorboat tours of the Ogi Coast lasting between 10 to 35 minutes, as well as high-speed sightseeing boats (group reservation required).

Niigata Main Areas


Found along the northwestern coast of Japan, Niigata prefecture is celebrated for its high-quality rice and breathtaking nature, most notably its spectacular mountains, whose white peaks draw in snow sports lovers from far and wide over the winter months. Hit the slopes at Yuzawa, pick out your favourite modern artist at Echigo Tsumari, or take a ferry over to Sado Island for an extra adventure.
