No major damage on Sado Island caused by June 18 Northwest Japan earthquake

Our thoughts go out to everyone affected by the recent earthquake in Niigata and Yamagata Prefectures on Jun. 18. A tsunami warning was issued for Sado Island, but it was later canceled. Fortunately, the earthquake did not cause any significant damage on Sado.

Thank you to everyone who showed their concern for our safety. We are all safe and well, and looking forward to welcoming you to Sado Island for Earth Celebration in August.
