Featured Photos: Autumn in Japan, Hitachi Seaside Park


Many people in Japan consider Autumn as their favorite season. One reason is that it’s a great time to visit Japanese gardens, public parks, temples, and historic places without worrying about very hot or very cold weather conditions. There are plenty of sunny but cool days.
One great place to visit during Autumn is the Hitachi Seaside Park, a public park located in Hitachinaka, Ibaraki, Japan. It is an area covered by a vast expanse of flower fields of many different species of flowering plants, each blooming on different seasons of the year. Because of the picturesque landscape of flowers, many tourists are drawn to it every year. The park includes cycling trails and a small amusement park.
