I have discovered many beautiful places in Japan, and one spot not far from Tokyo I
would recommend is Hitachi Seaside Park. It can be reached in around 90 minutes from
Tokyo's Ueno Station. If you like attractive scenery featuring lovely flowers, this is the
place for you.
Every season of the year, the park features different varieties of flowers in bloom. My favorite season is one that has just passed. From late April to mid-May, Nemophila flowers are in blossom in the Miharashi section of the park. Nemophila is a genus of flowers, and most of its species contain "baby blue eyes" in their common names. Being in the park filled with a sea of blue-eyed flowers makes you feel like you are in some fantasy world.
Hitachi Seaside Park is a great place for a quick trip. And with its extensive Pleasure Garden, featuring a giant flower Ferris wheel, rides and various other amusements, it offers interest for all the family.
