About

Colorful flowers are around all throughout the year featuring the nemophila of spring and the kochia of autumn

The park is about 110km north of Tokyo. Facing the Pacific Ocean, the sea breeze is very pleasant in the summer. The park is divided into 7 areas and each area has flowers that blossom all throughout the year. The nemophila which blooms in the Miharashi area is at its peak from late April to early May. On the huge 3.5ha Miharashi-no-Oka Hill which overlooks the Pacific, the 4.5 million blue blooms of the nemophila all open at once. The 360-degree view of this blue world of sky, sea and nemophila has a breathtaking beauty. In autumn, the kochia is famous. Known in Japanese as houkigusa, the fluffy red kochia is at its peak from late September to early October. As the greenery of summer slowly gives way to the colors of fall, it is this gradation from green to red that is charming. The kochia that has brilliantly changed color and painted Miharashi-no-Oka scarlet makes for superb scenery. In addition, there are the white and yellow spring daffodils and tulips, along with the sunflowers and lavender of summer, the cosmos of autumn and rape blossoms of winter, so the park can be enjoyed for its flora at any time.

An amusement park and plenty of sports facilities. People of all generations can enjoy the park together.

The Pleasure Garden area is a hit with the kids, and in March 2015, 5 of the attractions got an extra boost. Next to the amusement park, there is a gigantic slide which has a diameter of 24m and a large snake-like facility spanning 400m with 19 items so that you can play there for the entire day. The park area is certainly huge so it’s good to make use of the rental bicycles or the Seaside Train to get around. During the year, there are several days which are free of admission so please check the website before making your way to the park.

Very beautiful
My friend visited this garden during autumn last year. It was pretty, but quite windy too. It's because the location is next to the sea. That's why it is quite windy. Might as well come a little bit more prepared next time!

Magical!!
When you go see these flowers in April or May, when they are in full bloom you will be surrounded by millions of tiny little blue and purplish Nemophila flowers that are almost reflecting the sky above you. The park itself was already really nice, but the high light itself was definitely at the end were we could see the fields. I loved the fresh air since it was close to sea and there were a few really nice spots to take pictures and enjoy the view. The only down point is that there were quite a lot of people. But nevertheless it was a wonderful experience.
