Kochias are green colored but they turn red every THIRD WEEK OF OCTOBER. The side of Miharashi no Oka hill during pre-fall season is the best place to visit. Two hours away from Tokyo but there is a Limited Express train that is not too crowded that can bring you there. Ride Limited Express from UENO or TOKYO STATION and... More

... yes, don't have expectations about it. It's just a field afterall. Unless you have a fetish for whatever is japanese, you might realise there is really nothing special. But it is still nice to visit.

It was my 2nd visit to the park and i was still spellbound by the beauty of the flora in the park. The 1st visit was for the Nemophila, where the whole Miharashi no Oka hill was covered by tiny baby blue eyes, and it generated a very soothing and gentle beauty. But this time, the hill has been transformed... More

I had come here expecting to see flowers but the only thing worth seeing were the kochias what were still half green. It took a lot of effort to come here. There was supposed to be a shuttle bus from Ajigaura station to the park but the guy at the railway told me that the bus wasn't running today and... More

The first day when we arrived Jpn, the Kokia コキアis still yellowish, yet on 14.10.2015, only 1 week time, it became redish. As we just wanted to watch the Kokia コキア, we went there around 4pm, the sunset was very beautiful. We took photo there until 5pm (Time to close ). As the park is very large, according to the...

this is an amazingly large and enjoyable park and get-away from tokyo. Come prepared: not many flowers and botanical garden, more for small children -- also bring a book and picnic related things to better enjoy the park.

I am not sure why Hitachi Seaside Park is not that popular during summer. The greenery is equally beautiful too and it still has a surreal appeal. People tend to visit the park only during spring and early autumn. I must say, you are missing a lot. Aside from the green kochia, there's also zinnias you can enjoy. To all... More

Its a huge, wide place. The greenery is breathtaking. There were only few of the popular plants in bloom when we get there but it was still fun. The rental bike is more than recommended, its obligatory. You'll never get anywhere walking. The scents in the herbs garden is wonderful.

This is a great place to visit anytime of the year as the park changes from season to season. There is a fair bit to do here as there are different gardens, a area with games and shops, restaurants, there is a train/car that you can ride to see the park, there are carnival rides and more. I have been... More

This is an amazing park to visit in any season. You can enjoy the seasonal blooming of outstanding collection of different flowers in each part of this huge park. There is a small amusement park with a roller coaster, a ferris wheel with gives a great view. You can easily spend a day here.
