    The tour guide does not speak English/ Chinese throughout the whole tour. But, they have made it clear in the description, so we can't really complaint about it :D. Other than that, everything is great!

What To Expect

Kochia plants are an unusual but delightfully fluffy looking bloom that can be found en masse just a couple of hours away from Tokyo in Ibaraki Prefecture - most spectacular in Autumn. This day tour takes you out of the city and to a kochia sightseeing tour that begins at the Kanefuku Spicy Cod Roe Park. While it’s called a “park”, it’s actually a small museum that tells you all about the processing of this favorite Japanese delicacy. After seeing the process of how the cod roe is produced (and a trip to the gift shop), you’ll even get to taste some products! Your next stop will be to head to the Yamasa Seafood Restaurant for lunch. The area is well known for its seafood and you’ll get to gorge on the best of it with your lunch of mega-sized fresh sushi in an all-you-can-eat buffet, before you head out to go shopping. Then you’ll head to the National Hitachi Seaside Park, which is located by the coast. This large, public park is famous for its wealth of beautiful blooms flowing across 'Kochia Hill' and Miharashi Hill inside the park, an ocean of beautiful red, white and pink cosmos blooms. Kochia plants here are so numerous that it looks like a wave of fluffy, soft red plants swarming the ground, and it makes for a romantic, breathtaking view as you enjoy walking around the park. After viewing these beautiful blossoms, you’ll get the chance to go pear and chestnut picking, so you can enjoy fresh fruit and nuts to eat or bring home. Ibaraki prefecture’s sweet pears are famous all over Japan, and you’ll even get two sweet apples as gifts to go with them!

    Everything is good except for the early meeting time! Lol
  • WAI MAN 29 Oct 2017
    The original trip to pick pears and chestnuts, I do not know whether the relationship between the wind, arrived after the tour guide to cancel the picking, the scene sent two apples, two Sydney and ten chestnuts, a little disappointed. Keep the state-run Hitachi Park to see coral grass, too heavy rain so stay time is not too much.

    There is no Chinese and English video service! But the tour guide has a feeling very serious, the beach park time is too short

    Beach Park stay a little short, if you can be more than 1 hour will be better. In addition, the lunch can change another, that sushi is not clean, eat a little stomach pain. The other is very good.

    The tour guide is very good! Will try to accommodate the passengers. Although full Japanese, but other foreign travelers he will be another very brief description, really very brief. The trip is full, very rush, the instructions are clear, do not understand.
