 大蛇海岸の海岸からほど近くにありますが、道がわかりにくく、所有者の畑の中にあることから見学にはガイドの同行が必要です。名前から北海道固有の樹種と思いがちですが、北海道から九州まで分布しています。また日本の国蝶オオムラサキが産卵する木として有名です。

  Called "ezoenoki" in Japanese, the Japanese hackberry has a name which suggests its origins are on the northern island of Hokkaido, formerly known as Ezo. However, Japanese hackberries are distributed across the country, from Hokkaido in the north to Kyushu in the south. Japanese hackberries are also famous as the primary spawning tree for the Japanese emperor butterfly.

  While close to Oja Seaside, the road to this Japanese hackberry is a little hard to find. And since it's in the middle of a private farm field, an official guide is required to visit it.
