Hitachi Seaside Park, Hitachinaka
(4.4/5 based on 600+ reviews on the web)
Enjoy a stroll through vast fields of vibrant flowers at Hitachi Seaside Park. The park offers plenty of variety all year round, with the seasonal flowers changing providing a wide range of colors. Daffodils paint the fields yellow in early spring, while the baby blue colored nemophilla sprawl across the hillside shortly after. In the autumn you’ll spot fields of red kochia and will be able to walk across the aged leaves of metasequoia. Rent a bike to get around the large park and see all that it has to offer, or take a ride on the ferris wheel for panoramic photo opportunities. Using our international travel planner, Hitachinaka attractions like Hitachi Seaside Park can form part of a personalized travel itinerary.

  • Kochia leaves went in mid-October. Large numbers of tourists visited because it was a day of great weather of autumn. I did not get bothered by congestion because only the park itself is so vast it is. Kochia Hill as the beautiful and is very nice, it is also enriched by green. Not recommend walking a vast garden with open bathrooms to go around the Park, Knightsbridge.

  • 國營日立海濱公園腹地非常廣大,園區內規劃很多植物專區及一些地景裝置藝術。這次是專程去看秋天會呈現紅通通的掃帚草,毛茸茸的樣子非常可愛,有瞬間被療癒的感覺,也會讓人手停不下來的一直拍照。另外掃帚草位於見晴花園區即使離入園西口較近,走路到達也需要花費20分鐘左右,趕時間或想偷懶的人可以先坐環繞園區的小火車前往會比較快。 
  • It is a large park on the Pacific Ocean. In the amusement area, we took a walk through just a little but it was crowded with families. I hear colors are beautiful.

  • Finally had the chance to visit this park after seeing it on all sorts of lists of must visit places in the world. It definitely didn't disappoint. The highlight was obviously the red kochia hills. However, the other flower fields nearby were a nice pleasant surprise including the cosmos. The park is also relatively large and contains one giant open field, a mini theme park, and even a disc golf course. Entrance fee was a reasonable 410yen per adult. Only challenge is getting here as there are no reliable trains so we ended up renting a car. Overall, amazing day trip from Tokyo especially in mid October for the kochia or sometime in the spring for nemophilia. Great for both dogs and kids!
  • We were there this year at the second week of october. We saw posters everywhere with the picture of the kochia flower in vivid red, but we were a little disappointed to see that most of the flowers not yet turned to red, although it supposed to the time to visit if you want to see the change of colors. All in all, it was fun experience, the pak is huge, and there are attractions for kids and a ferris wheel.
  • Just Awesome! The red kochia transformed the hill into red during the October season. It's best to view the red Kochia normally during the 3rd week in October. Best time to go during 1st week of May for Nemophilias too where the while hill is in blue.
  • The place is excellent for family people to take the kids on their own or with friends and other families to join got trip and day out together. It's very close to Costco ro pop around for food. The attractions are very good and not too expensive, bit if you ade staying whole day might be better to pay for a day pass. The place is really large and has a lot trees and field areas for picking if you prefer bento perhaps made in home. Also they offer bicycles for hire and they have seats for all ages and sizes if the kids are too small and can't ride yet. The entry fee is ¥ 410 per adult and children over 6 years, the one under that age go for free. However everyone needs to pay for the fun fair rides ☺.
  • Hitachi Seaside Park From Tokyo: - Start at Ueno Station - Take JR Joban Line to Katsuta Station (70)mins - Take taxi or Ibaraki Kotsu bus to park (15 mins)
