Seeing Japan's flowers bloom in full is an absolute must especially in the springtime. Where else is better to go to than both the Hitachi Seaside Park and the Ashikaga Flower Park, where blossoms are in its absolute glory everywhere you go? When you depart from Tokyo, begin this treat of a tour in the morning at Hitachi Seaside Park, a spacious park in Ibaraki Prefecture featuring a variety of green spaces and seasonal flowers spread out across 350 hectares, as well as an amusement park and several cycling and walking trails. The park's iconic flower is the blue nemophila, which covers Miharashi Hill in the spring and mimics the color of the sky. At lunchtime, drop by Stamina Taro Next in Mito City, where you can eat all you can during a buffet lunch that includes 130 choices of food such as yakiniku, sushi, desserts and more. Finally before returning to Tokyo, explore the Ashikaga Flower Park, where the purple-colored wisteria are in full bloom this time of the year. Walk through the iconic flower tunnel where you'll be surrounded by beautiful blossoms. This romantic trip to two flower-filled public parks is something no one can simply forget.
