As you might know, Japan has a lot of beautiful places but have you ever been to “The Blue Universe?”

Hitachi Seaside Park in Ibaraki prefecture has a variety of flowers blooming throughout the year but I really recommend you visiting in sunny spring. It turns into all blue which is actually 4.5 millions of baby blue eyes spreading out. You’d be surprised by the mesmerizing view.

It’ll take you 1.5 hours from Ueno station in Tokyo to Katsuta station by express train and 20 minutes to the park from Katsuta station by bus. The best season to visit is usually from the end of April to the first week of May but it depends on the weather.

These are the pictures that I took in the park this year. How about going to “The Blue Universe” on your bucket list? I’d be glad they are a trigger for you to visit the park next spring.
