Gorgeous ParkReviewed by: DOTH, 2015/10/16
Getting to Hitachi Park by myself looked like way to much of a hassle, so I was lazy and booked the bus tour instead. While really all I was interested in was seeing the kochia, the stop at the fish market and Japanese pear picking were quite pleasant too.
The kochia trees (shrubs?) were incredible, covering an entire hill in red fluffiness, and the cosmos and little rest stops in the park were also quite charming. I am very glad I got to see the peak of the season, as the whole area looked like a scene out of Dr. Seuss!
