The Hitachi Seaside Park is one of the many gardens in Japan both tourists and locals are so fascinated by.
I am actually quite envious of countries like Japan that put so much value and care for nature. Whether forest or floral gardens, Hitachi Seaside Park is just one the many gardens Japan is famous for.
I still recall the time falling into this magical teary-eyed trance upon stepping into the enchanting Kawachi Fujien Wisteria Tunnel in Fukuoka…
That spring awakening blossomed into a love affair for Japanese gardens and that led me to Hokkaido in the summertime for all the most popular flower fields!
For this episode, it’s perfect for autumn as the Hitachi Seaside Park has several seasonal floral offerings. Giving you reason to visit the park more than once a year.
Fall is when you’ll find the quirky, bright pink kochia! It’s one thing to look at it then actually touch it. It’s certainly not what you expect it to be.
Straight out of a cartoon, Autumn blooms never looked so quirky…
Other than blossoms, there’s so much more to this massive park than what photos might suggest.
Watch this week’s episode to see what else the Hitachi Seaside Park is home to.
HINT: It’s not flowers.
