Hitachi Seaside Park is a spacious park in Ibaraki Prefecture with a variety of green spaces and seasonal flowers spread over 350 hectares, as well as an amusement park and several cycling and walking trails. The iconic flower of the park is the blue nemophila, which in the spring covers Miharashi Hill and imitates the sky color. The flowers are usually between late April and mid-May at their peak. Paths cross the hill overlooking the Pacific Ocean and the rest of the park. In fall, green kokia bushes cover the hill, which turn red slowly as the weather becomes cooler. Usually from early to mid-October, these autumn colors are best.
While flowers are seasonal highlights, it is possible to enjoy the park throughout the year. The extensive Hitachinaka Nature Forest has walking trails, while the Dune Garden showcases plants native to Japan's coastline. This area often remains relatively quiet even when the rest of the park is crowded. There are two other ways to get around as well as walking due to the size of the park. Rental bicycles are available for three hours starting at 400 yen, and nearly eleven kilometers of cycling paths–separate from pedestrian paths–allow easy access to the various park areas.
