[ Hitachi Seaside Park ]

TGIF everyone!  I come back again with another travelogue! :)

We made a trip to Hitachi Seaside Park during our previous trip to Japan and I purposely marked it as one of the must-visit places in my itinerary for this trip. I have heard so many wonders about this spacious park located in Ibaraki Perfecture. It features a variety of seasonal flower spread out across 190 hectares, a small amusement park and cycling paths. This park is well-known for its baby blue eyes flowers (blue nemophila) in late April to early May and follow by a sea of red kochia in mid October to late November. This time round, I'm there for the red kochia!

You must be wondering what so special about this place? 

Scroll down for more and let the pictures below do the talking.  




We slowly made our way to the top of the hill and the view was simply breathtaking. The weather was great too.

My mom tryin' to do the hide-and-seek post hehe. 

So the daugther follows. Here's kind of my version of hide-and-seek. Gotcha!:)

Cosmos but not in full bloom yet :( 

Miharashi Hill, where the Kochia bushes were planted. 

I get quite disappointed with this view as I thought it would be in the shade of crimson. Here's a kind reminder, make sure you keep your eyes peeled to the official website to get more instant information about the bloom schedule a.ka the flower calendar as the staffs will make timely updates.
