Said to to be home to over 650 varieties of plants, the Tanesashi Coast is known as the “Shore of Flowers” for the variety of colorful flowers that bloom here through the seasons. This complex ecosystem, nurtured by the “Yamase” northeast wind that freezes the ground in winter and keeps summers cool, which features terrain such as rocks, sand, wetlands and grasslands, pastures that have been used for horse grazing for hundreds of years, has been protected by the ceaseless conservation activities of local people who love the area.
The “Shore of Flowers” is not far from the city center, so why not wander along the seaside while you admire the flowers?
