If you ever go to Japan, make sure you don’t miss the opportunity to visit the Hitachi Seaside Park. Located near Mito in the Ibaraki Prefecture, just two hours away from Tokyo, and spread over 190 acres, it is rich in various floral attractions.

The place also has an amusement park, walking and cycling trails, and a ferris wheel that stands 100 feet above sea level.

The park is rich in numerous different seasonal flowers, like a million daffodils, ice roses, and 170 varieties of tulips, but in late April and mid-May, it becomes a magical place, during the Nemophila Harmony.

4.5 million Nemophilia flowers, or “baby blue eyes”, cover the 8.6 acre-area of Miharashi hills, creating a floral blue-hue carpet. Anyone visiting the park has been fascinated by the beautiful and delicate flowers enriching the natural scenery of the hills, which are about 58m above sea level.

While opening days of the park change during peak seasons, it is usually open from 9:30 am to 5:00 pm. except for Mondays.

Yet, the Hitachi Seaside Park is currently closed due to the coronavirus pandemic, so you can watch the video below and plan your trip for next spring!

If you fell in love with the baby blue eyes, (Nemophila Menziesii), you’d be happy to know that they are easy to maintain, and you can grow your own, as Nemophila flowers are actually native to North America.

Nemophila means “woodland-loving”, and stems from the Latin words nemus, which means “grove” or “wooded glade”, and the Greek word philos, which means “loving”.

The hardy, low-spreading shrub with succulent stems grows well in USDA hardiness zones 2-10. It has five bell or cup-shaped petals, with stamens, and one ovary chamber.

You can plant the seeds in early spring, and water them a lot during the first six weeks of germination. When they bloom, reduce the watering, and enjoy the pretty flowers, whose stems cover a large part of the green leaves and stems.

Gisteren introduceerden we het Hitachi Seaside Park. Het speciale aan dit park is dat het niet alleen leuk is om te bezoeken in de lente, maar het hele jaar door! ⠀⠀⁠ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⁠ Zo groeien er in de lente deze bosliefjes, ook wel nemophila genoemd, die je op de foto ziet. In de zomer bloeien de zonnebloemen, in de herfst de cosmos bloemen en in de winter kan je prachtige ice cream tulpen vinden. En dit is alleen nog maar een kleine selectie! 🌷 ⠀⠀⁠ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⁠ #hitachiseasidepark #japan #bloemen #travel #discoverjapan #japanreizen #explorejapan #japantrip #rondreis #visitjapan #japantravel #instatravel #reizen #travelgram #photooftheday #vakantie #reisinspiratie #reisblogger #reisfotografie #wanderlust
