Tanesashi Coast is a beautiful coastline that a famous Japanese writer, Ryotaro Shiba, cared about a lot. He mentioned this coast as “the place he wanted to show the most if someone from another planet came to earth.” Grass, white beach, and various sizes of rocks form a variegated scenery that you can never get bored with. Wild birds and animals show themselves, more than 650 species of seasonal seaside plants and alpine plants bloom beautifully, and people enjoy camping and sea bathing in summer. It is a fascinating place definitely worth visiting.
