Hitachi Seaside Park, BBQ and Onsen Trip

2017 October 14 (Saturday)

Hitachinaka, Ibaraki

An outdoor adventure for all ages!

With an area of about 350 hectares, Hitachi Seaside Park boasts its wide variety of seasonal flowers such as Pampas Grass, Cosmos and Hamagiku in Autumn. Miharashi no Oka Kochia (Red) is the most popular amongst them all and attracts thousands of visitors each year.

There are also walking trails through the extensive Hitachinaka Nature Forest to explore and enjoy. While the Dune Garden showcases plants native to the coastline of Japan.

You will have a chance to meet lots of people and make new friends at the lunchtime BBQ party.

We'll finish the day relaxing in the onsen with a beautiful ocean view.
