Kasuga-no-hama Beach

Kasuga-no-hama is located in Fuse, northeast of Dōgo Island. Around this area you can observe the unusual distribution of plants commonly found in Oki. The species found here are normally distributed in different environments.

Kasuga Shrine is located by the coast. On the shrine grounds you can find the southern flower Nagoran (Sedirea japonica) growing on a Japanese black pine (Pinus thunbergii). You can also see the endemic species Oki Rhododendron (Rhododendron japonoheptamerum Kitam. var. okiense) growing at the bottom of the tree. Along the coast you can find the northern species Rugosa rose (Rosa rugosa), continental species Totei-ran (Veronica ornata), Mitsuba-iwagasa (Spiraea blumei var. obtusa), and Arrowwood (Viburnum carlesii).
