Let’s face it, we all love the smell of flowers. Whether it be Wisteria hysteria in London or tulip mania in Holland, nothing quite beats the kaleidoscopic magic of mother nature. That’s why you need to visit this amazing park in Japan. Right now.
Located in Hitachinaka, Ibaraki prefecture, Japan, Hitachi Seaside Park is one of Japan’s most popular tourist attractions.
Covering a mammoth 3.5 hectares (8.6 acres), you’ll find all sorts of flowers blooming here all year round.
The place is most famous for its gorgeous blue nemophilas.
During springtime, more than 4.5 million of them bloom all over Hitachi.
The spectacle is so bewitching that there’s even a name dedicated to it: ‘Nemophila Harmony’.
But the weirdest things you’ll come across are these alien-like Kochias, which are scattered all over a massive hill that gives you panoramic views over the Pacific Ocean.
Aside from nemophilas, the park has about a million daffodils blooming amidst countless pine trees, about 170 varieties of tulips, and many other fabulous flowers.
Oh, and there are cute little woodlands to explore and cycling courses sprinkled throughout the park too.
