Koya-zaka Slope and Lycoris radiata (Red Spider Lily)（Koya-zaka-to Higanbana）
Adding extra color to the autumn landscape along the ancient trail
Near the Miwasaki–side entrance to Koya-zaka Slope, you can see a small creek flowing, and in fall, the flowers of Lycoris radiata (red spider lily) bloom beautifully in that area. You cannot find many places (like this) on the Nakahechi route that are surrounded by red spider lilies, since the route mostly runs through mountainous regions.
