A Floral Paradise: 4.5 Million Baby Blue Eye Flowers at Hitachi Seaside Park in Japan
Humans have loved flowers for millennia, for both their looks and their scents. We find the smells positively intoxicating, the colors alluring and the symmetry in forms worth celebrating.
Today we present you a place that can be considered the paradise of flowers: Hitachi Park, a sprawling 470 acre park nestled by the seaside in Japan. The park features vast flower gardens including millions of daffodils, 170 varieties of tulips, and an estimated 4.5 million baby blue eyes (Nemophila).
The most famous ones, Nemophila, thrive and bloom in the spring, particularly in April, creating a truly mesmerizing view at the Hitashi Seaside Park of 4.5 million blossoms covering the fields. Tourists come from all over the world to gaze at the remarkable, translucent blooms, which cover so much of the landscape that they look like their own sea. They atract so many people that photographers have to photoshop them out of the fields, as it is impossible to take a person-free landscape photo.
If you’re planning on visiting Japan in the spring, don’t forget to include this park in your must-see list! Until then, we collected some of the greatest shots with the amazing sea of Baby Blue Eye flowers at Hitachi Seaside Park for you to drool over.
