Return to Sado part 2
Just up the road from the campsite was the 1st residence of the Buddist monk Nichiren. It is now preserved as a museum and is kept in fantastic condition with a large statue of Nichiren sitting peacefully in the garden. The adjoining building next door was built in a traditional western style and seemed out of place in such a small Japanese fishing village. But this was just one of many surprises that we encountered along the coast.
