"This quintessential example of a ria coast was formed via erosion caused by the crashing waves of the Pacific Ocean. ""Ubara Risokyo"" refers to all of Cape Myojin in Ubara, Katsuura City. Coastal plants also grow thickly here and the area is a naturally rich, picturesque destination. A favorite of writers and artists since ancient times, Akiko Yosano, in particular, wrote many poems about the area. The name ""Risokyo,"" meaning ""ideal land,"" is derived from the plan to turn the area into a holiday villa community in the Tahsho period (1912-1926)."
