Beautiful nemophila (baby blue eyes) covered almost the entire hillside when we went yesterday. So breathtaking! And the sheer variety of tulips is sure to delight everyone. There are also rides and attractions for the kids so there is something for everyone. Bring in your own food and drinks to avoid waiting in line at the booths. There aren't enough... More

We travelled from Tokyo & spent almost 4 hours commuting back & forth. I wished I could say it was worth it in that the park provided a respite from bustling metropolitan city but ultimately the lack of flora at the time of our visit in mid October was disappointing. We managed to catch to kochias hill and was enchanted... More

The pictures of the park were great. But if you plan to go there during end of March or early April, you may want to reconsider because only the Suisen Garden and the Kinen No Mori footpath have blooming flowers despite the very huge size of the park during this timing. Yes, they are beautiful and still a sight to... More

I went to Hitachi Seaside Park in late Oct 2014. It was pity that the kochias were already in its late bloom, and the bushes were not in their prime bright red. Nonetheless, the park is still beautiful and extremely peaceful. You can choose to take a stroll or pay for 500yen for a day of unlimited rides in the... More

There is something for everyone. Handicapped accesable and plenty of areas to eat within park including picnic areas. Clean toilet facilities throught park . Beautiful fountain in main entrance, play ground for the youngsters, sand garden, wooded areas, old Japanese homes and how they were built. Train ride and bicycle riding extra but worth it. Small amusement park, golf course.... More

I went there in autumn and I don't think it's worth of travelling 2 hours and costing more than ¥2000. It could be beautiful in spring, not autumn because only two kinds of flowers blossom in autumn, took me about an hour to finish!

Last May, I went to Hitachi Seaside Park to see the field of nemophila - I called the park Blue Mountain then. Recently, I went back to experience the blooming Kochia flowers / bushes and it was amazing. I was about to cancel my trip because of the typhoon but luckily I did not. The park is almost empty and... More

Hitachi seaside park is an hour and twenty minutes from Ueno station of the Joban Line Limited Express train (covered by the Japan Rail Pass). The park is quite large and is filled with flowers and other interesting sites. The best times to visit would be in May for flowers and in mid-late October for the full Autumn colours.
