If your idea of a perfect date involves a walk among flowers, there is no place more beautiful than Hitachi Seaside Park. Hitachi Seaside Park is an expansive park most famed for its blue nemophila in late spring. 4.5 million nemophila flowers bloom in the Mitarashi Hill, transforming the rolling greens into a sea of blue. The peak blooming season for these enchanting blue flowers is usually from late April to mid May. Couples will be able to take a truly romantic stroll in a magical carpet of blue.
While it may be most well-known for its nemophila, there are also many other attractions within the park that couples can enjoy, such as an amusement park complete with a rainbow-hued ferris wheel. Take the giant ferris wheel in the amusement park to get a panoramic view of the park and see a surreal view where the baby blues meet the azure blue of the sky.
During the nemophila season, couples can also indulge in nemophila-themed food such as nemophila soft serve. My husband freaked out at the unnatural blue colour of the ice-cream at first, but upon trying it, we thought it tasted like yogurt ice-cream, and loved it. Having the soft serves in the amusement park made us feel like high school students on a date, and we certainly didn’t mind this throwback in time.
There is also a huge grassland area whereby you can get creative with dating ideas, but we think it would be ideal for a lazy afternoon picnic. As the park is colossal with many cycling paths, you can even rent a bike to have an active date out in nature. There are tandem bikes provided for couples, so you can be even closer to each other and enjoy in unison!
