Senkaku Bay is a scenic bay on the northwestern coast of Sado Island. The area is a Quasi National Park, and its steep rocky cliffs and beautiful scenery are said to resemble Hardanger Bay in Norway.

Tourists can view the bay from observation view points in Senkaku Bay Ageshima Park and from sightseeing boat cruises. Cruises by glass bottom boats depart from inside Senkaku Bay Ageshima Park and last about 15 minutes.
