Sado island

Japan's Sado Island boasts beautiful scenery and a rich cultural heritage.

You can also visit the now-closed gold mines that financed the shogunate for hundreds of years. (Here is a page of panoramic photos of the island's sights.)

And if diving is your shtick, you can also frolic with the fishes.

Barrel boat rides are a popular attraction on the island.
