4.5 Million “Baby Blue” Flowers Bloom Across Japanese Park In a Sea of Blue Lights

Hitachi Seaside Park is a public park in Hitachinaka, Ibaraki, Japan, that is home to some of the most spectacular flower beds in the world. The park is best known for its baby blue-eyes flowers that bloom in the spring. An average of 4.5 million translucent-petaled blue flowers draws tourists from around the world every spring. The baby blue flowers are known as Nemophila, and the annual spring blooming is known as the “Nemophila Harmony.”

Nemophila means “woodland-loving”. It comes from the Latin word nemus, which means “grove” or “wooded glade”, and the Greek word philos, which means “loving”.
All species of Nemophila are annual flowers, and most bloom in the springtime. Their flowers have five petals and are bell or cup-shaped, and purple, blue, or white in color, often spotted or marked. The stamens are included and there is only one ovary chamber. Oddly enough, the Nemophila species are mainly native to the western United States, and while some species are also found in western Canada and Mexico, they are actually fairly rare in Japan, which makes the blooming all that more special.

In addition to the annual blooming of the baby blue flowers, the Hitachi Seaside Park features a million daffodils, 170 varieties of tulips, and many other flowers. The park also includes bike trails and a small amusement park with a Ferris wheel, roller coaster, and other rides.

During the fall months, the landscape is just as breathtaking, because the hills turn red with crimson-colored flowers.

The incredible sights make this park a destination for travelers and tourists all over the world, and is a popular stop for anyone visiting the nearby city of Tokyo, which is just over an hour away from the park if traveled by high-speed train.
