There's a Park in Japan Where Over 4.5 Million Blue Flowers Bloom Each Spring
This place is magical.

If you missed cherry blossom season in Japan, you can still catch another stunning floral display right now at Hitachi Seaside Park. Located just under a two-hour drive northeast of Tokyo, the hills of this coastal park have recently been covered in a blanket of blue nemophila flowers. The views are nothing short of magical.


Nemophila, nicknamed "baby blue eyes," is actually native to California, but the 4.5 million flowers that bloom at Hitachi Seaside Park each spring are some of the world's most impressive displays of the blossom. But that's not even the best part. If you look closely, you'll notice that the fields of blue nemophila are also dotted with delicate red poppies.

Different! ?????????????????????

Be warned—the park is very popular with tourists making it difficult to get that perfect Instagram shot of the flowers without people in the background.


But if you can find an angle without the crowds, the photos you can capture there are truly exceptional.

. Shout out love in the sea of Nemophila. ???? . ??????????????? ?????????????
