In the fields and hills of colour.

Literally translated from Japanese Hitachi means “to bloom”. Hitachi Seaside Park is located in Hitachinaka, Japan – it is entirely a flower park and a popular tourist destination. The park covers an area of 350 hectares.  The park has planted entire fields of different colors specifically for flower festivals: cherry blossoms, tulips, daffodils, poppies, lilies. ach season you will find a different variety of flower blossoming over the “Miharashi No Oka”, a hill commanding a panoramic view of the Pacific Ocean. But it is particularly known for blue nemophilas – these are annual flowers with transparent blue petals. During spring, more than 4.5 million blue nemophilas bloom all over the park. The blooming period is called “Nemophilia Harmony” – the annual flower festival attracts hundreds of visitors. During the festival 1000 cherry trees are decorated with hanging paper lanterns.
