Hitachi Seaside Park
Explore 200 hectares of beautiful flowers and green spaces.
The sprawling 200-hectare Hitachi Seaside Park in Ibaraki Prefecture is home to a variety of flowers that bloom throughout the year. Particularly popular are the fields of densely blooming Nemophila (baby blue eyes) in the spring and the kochia (summer cypress), which turn from green to bright red in the fall. In addition to pedestrian trails, guests can also enjoy exploring the park on a cycling course (rental bicycles available) or on the cute Seaside Train.
