Tree-like plant resembling a large "udo" (Aralia cordata or Japanese spikenard) grows on the coast.
From April to early June, what will attract your attention so much on the coast along the Ohechi route is Agelica japonica, a plant also known as “hama-udo” in Japan. The plant grows on a sandy beach or in a rocky area, spreading its leaves very wide. When flowering, its stem grows up to 1 to 1.5 m in height.
