Autumn at Hitachi Seaside Park
Hitachi Seaside Park is a national park with beautiful flowers that decorate the park each year.
Flowers bloom and soon cover the whole of the park. Although famous as a place to see these flowers, the area also hosts an amusement park.
As autumn begins, the colour of the kochia changes from green to red (see photo above). At the same time, pretty white buckwheat flowers and stunning red, white and pink cosmos bloom at the foot of the hill. Each day the colours change and so no visit to the area is ever the same. Please come and visit Hitachi Seaside Park during autumn and see the beautiful colours of the fauna there.
