On January 1, 2006, Sadowara, along with the town of Tano (also from Miyazaki District), and the town of Takaoka (from Higashimorokata District), was merged into the expanded city of Miyazaki and no longer exists as an independent municipality.
Residents of Sadowara were known in the region for flying "Kujiranobori", similar to koinobori but in the shape of whales instead of carp.
