Lodging in the Ogi area is limited and fills up quickly every year but rest assured: with increased bus services during EC, you can easily stay at one of the great hotels, inns, or campgrounds dotted around Sado Island. For assistance to find accommodations, please contact Sado Tourism Association (in Japanese or English) with your dates, number of guests, and any other requests. Please note that some lodges offer only shared rooms and/or no meal services during EC.
