Hitachi Seaside Park – Tsunami Survivor


Hitachi Seaside Park


The Miharashi No Oka hill offers visitors the sight of the panoramic splendor of the Pacific Ocean. Yet it is not the sea views that people come to see in Hitachinaka, a small city on the east coast of Japan. It is the Hitachi Seaside Park, devastated by the tsunami of 2011 but now restored to its former, somewhat bizarre, glory.

The park is not large, it covers only 3.5 hectares yet the flowers draw people from all over the Ibaraki prefecture and beyond. There is something on offer all seasons. It is truly famous for the nemophilas which wash the whole area in to a blue hue.

As well as the nemophilas there are shrubs which change color with the season – from green to a deep red. Many have commented, tongue in cheek, that if you look carefully you will find the Lorax here. The park is, quite simply, amazing – and a testament to the ability of the Japanese people to bounce back from disaster.
