Rosy pink colors that spread across the beach

Raphanus sativus f. raphanistroides (the Japanese wild radish) is a perennial found in sandy areas of sea coasts. In spring, it produces flowers in light rosy pink (light red). The radishes grow in colonies in many areas along the Ohechi route. If you pull them out, you can see the small thin “daikon” (radish) roots attached underneath.
