We cleaned Sobama beach!

We cleaned Sobama beach with 5th grade at Ogi Elementary School. The wave was so calm and transparent. We all felt so good seeing clean and beautiful beach in the end.
At the time of EC, please drop by at Sobama beach. The campgrounds are also located by the beach, so this is a great place to swim, barbecue and enjoy the summer time on Sado Island. Round-trip buses leave from the EC Information Centre for Sobama beach every hour.
