About Hitachi Seaside Park
Hitachi Seaside Park is located in Hitachi Naka City, Ibaraki Prefecture, Japan. It is not so much a park as a garden, because it is a sea of flowers, a world of flowers, and a paradise of flowers in every season, presenting visitors with a vibrant landscape where you can see and smell flowers every day.
Tsuruga Seaside Park covers an area of 3.5 hectares and has become one of the most prestigious tourist destinations in Japan, where you can enjoy daffodils and tulips in spring, pink buttercups, roses and white sunflowers in summer, and ground elder and blue cosmos in autumn. This colorful garden is famous for the blue pink butterfly, an annual plant with beautiful transparent blue petals, which attracts many visitors in the spring when about 4.5 million blue pink butterfly plants bloom. In addition to the blue pink butterflies, there are more than 1 million daffodils and 170 kinds of tulips under the pine trees in the garden, making it a must-see attraction when visiting Japan.
In addition to being able to enjoy the flowers, Hitachinoki Seaside Park also offers bicycles, sports fields and barbecue areas for visitors to enjoy themselves in a sea of flowers.

December was off-season so it was not crowded at all. I would recommend it because there is no wait for the rides, but there were no kitchen cars, which are available in the on-season, and the stores were closed, including the turkey store. There was no kitchen car, which is available in the on-season, and the shop was closed, as was the turkey shop. It was a shame because we had bought a free pass for some of the rides. Still, there are staffs at popular attractions, so it is good if you just want to go on those rides. Or it would be better if you can ask them to move it! It would be better if you can say “Move it! I think it is better to be able to move freely compared to the crowded areas during the nemophila and kochia season.
