A 300 million year geographic journey, as well as human activity, on the island of gold and silver mines where Japanese crested ibises fly.

Sado Island was not always located where it is now.
Separation from the continents, intense volcanic activity, uplift of the seabed, these things all played a role in the island's formation.
Because of these events, we now have this island which features various unique landforms, plants and animals.
