Red Kochia Are Attracting Visitors to Kagawa

Autumn Colors Kagawa Shikoku

Scarlet plants are wooing visitors in Kagawa Prefecture, found on the western island of Shikoku.

Most of the 6,000 Kochia plants at Sanuki Manno Park have turned red. One major draw to the park is the seasonal changes that bring a variety of colors.

The pom-pom-shaped plants are green during the summer. But they change color around October at this national park.
