At Hitachi Seaside Park – the main attraction of Ibaraki Prefecture, the fun never stops. In May, the nemophila flowers turn the ground into a sea of refreshing blue. The beautiful scenery can draw so many tourists that sometimes people call it “Human Phila” instead. But trust me: when you immerse yourself in the beauty where the blue sky and the blue nemophilas meet, your heart will be awash in such wonder you’ll forget about the crowds.
You can cycle amidst nature with the Park’s rent-a-bike service (400 yen for adults, 250 yen for children). Plus the Park also boasts a theme park with a ferris wheel. When the summer gets too hot, simply cool down with a delicious bowl of shaved ice from the shop!
