It's said April showers bring May flowers, but why wait an extra month when you can enjoy fascinating flora now?
If patience is not your forte and you need your dose of pretty flowers now, make a trip to Hitachi Seaside Park in Japan.
Located less than two hours from Tokyo, the public park sits in the city of Hitachinaka in the Ibaraki Prefecture. Every April, the 190 hectares of park space transforms into an ocean of blue flowers. Locals call it the "Nemophila Harmony" after the baby-blue nemophila flower.
The park also features roughly a million daffodils and over a hundred varieties of tulips. Talk about your flower power!
If a trip to Hitachi in the spring is out of the question, don't worry. The park is always a visual treat no matter what time of the year it is. The park shifts to hues of red as well as green in the summer and come fall, it becomes a giant palette of orange.
So what's the best way to view the park? Well, there are always plenty of people walking around but if you're looking to see a bit of everything, there are bike paths and a giant Ferris wheel that gives a great overview of the area.
