🍁 Ibaraki: Hitachi Seaside Park for Kochia
In October, kochias (summer cypress) turns the Miharashi hills from green to crimson against the backdrop of the ocean and sky. Cosmoses cover the hillside with flowers of white, pink, and red. Hitachi Seaside Park is in full swing in autumn.
When the spring nemophila blooming is over, it’s time for the kochias. The change from green to crimson is truly dynamic: the Kochia Carnival has started! (Source)
