Sado island, one of remote places in Japan. In spite of that, it has a curious history and it can't escape being thrust into the spot light even today. Located in the Sea of Japan, Koreans call it East Sea, close to Korea and Russia. International intrigue played there. I grew up on the mainland right across from Sado island. Past is interesting but its excitement is not ending. We will all be thrust into our future. We have to keep our wits about or else. We will make it but its twist and turn is more than a genial surprise.
