Is Japan on your bucket list? If yes, make sure you visit the Hitachi Seaside Park. It’s located near Mito in the Ibaraki Prefecture. That’s a two-hour ride from Tokyo. The park covers 190 acres, and it’s famous for its floral attractions.

There’s an amusement park, walking and cycling trails and a ferris wheel that goes about 100 feet above sea level.

The Hitachi Seaside Park is a home of daffodils, ice roses and 170 varieties of tulips. But, the real magic takes place in late April and mid-May.

Have you ever heard of the Nemophilia Harmony?

About 8.6 acres of Miharashi hills are covered by 4.5 million Nemophilia flowers. These flowers also go by the name “baby blue eyes.” The flowers create the most beautiful flower carpet and tourists come just to see the magic. The flowers grow in an area that’s about 58 meters above sea level.

The park is open from 9:30 am to 5:00 pm, and it’s close on Mondays. Opening days of the park change during the peak of the season.

Today, the park is closed due to the COVID-19 outbreak. That’s why we have shared a few nice videos.

Nemophilia flowers are native to North America, and you can grow your own.

Nemophilia stands for “Woodland-loving.” It comes from the Latin word “nemus” (meaning “grove” or “wooden glade”) and the Greek word “philos” which means “loving.”

The flowers grow in a hardy, low-spreading shrub. The succulent stems thrive well in USDA hardiness zones 2-10. The flower has five bell-shaped petals, stamens and an ovary chamber.

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

Plant Nemophilia seeds in early spring. Water them in the first six weeks of germination. Reduce the watering after the shrubs bloom.
