No Reason To Feel Blue: Just Go Visit Hitachi Seaside Park

No reason to feel blue: Just go visit Hitachi Seaside Park

HITACHINAKA, Ibaraki Prefecture--A sea of blue greets visitors to the Hitachi Seaside Park here.

An estimated 4.5 million nemophila plants are now in full bloom and nature lovers are flocking to the trails that zigzag the flower festooned hillside.

With unseasonably warm weather since late March, the flowers reached their peak about 10 days earlier than usual.

They will be at their best until late April, just before the start of the holiday-studded Golden Week.
