Autumn Can Tell : Hitachi Seaside Park, Tokyo Station, Imperial Palace In A Day!

by - 2:24 AM

[October 18, 2019] After that tiring walk in the main streets of Tokyo, we decided to tour the eastern side of Japan, the Ibaraki prefecture, and visit the famous Hitachi Seaside Park the next day. That was one of the best days I had in Japan last year. Hitachi Seaside Park has a lot of large flowers and other flora lives in that vast parkland and farm.


Before you proceed, all train stations will stop at Katsuta Station before you take a bus going to Hitachi Seaside Park. Now, here's a great deal.

IMPORTANT TIP: How much is the bus fare and admission fee of Hitachi Seaside Park?

If you buy the roundtrip bus fare from Katsuta Station to Hitachi Seaside Park for JPY 1,200, the entrance fee to Hitachi Seaside Park is FREE.
Take note, the admission fee is JPY 450 and regular bus fare is JPY 400 one way. That's a total of JPY 1250. You save 50 Yen for other expenses! Wink!

Hitachi Seaside Park is a public park in Hitachinaka, Ibaraki, Japan.

Hitachi Seaside Park is a  very big park near Mito in Ibaraki Prefecture that houses a variety of green flora species and seasonal flowers across 350 hectares. This park has a small amusement park with over 25 rides including the iconic giant Ferris Wheel which is 100 meters tall. But sadly, we were not able to visit this side of Hitachi because we were overwhelmed by the autumn colors of Kochia (Bassia in English)

During summer, Kochia plants give green colors but when Autumn comes in October, it changes its color into a bright red and eventually becomes yellow or golden yellow. The Kochia field is very lovely even though it becomes crowded. When you visit the uphill, it is very windy and refreshing giving you another view of beautiful Japan.

Restaurants and BBQ stands are everywhere, so food and drinks are not a problem when visiting Hitachi. But take note, always bring with you a bottle of water as the Park is very huge that walking makes you tired and you need to replenish those fluids lost by sweating.  I recommend spending at least one day here in Hitachi Park.


The Tokyo Station is now considered as one of the tourist spots in Tokyo. Aside from its attractive red-brick facade, Tokyo Station Marunouchi Station building is the highlight architecture of Tokyo in the middle of the glass and modern skyscrapers in the neighborhood. It is a central station from and to the other different stations in Japan. Also, you can shop here with different stores and souvenir stands. From Tokyo Station, you can just walk for 10-15 minutes going to the famous Imperial Palace.


Okay, guys, this is quick! Since we spent almost all our hours in Hitachi Seaside Park, we arrived at Imperial Palace at around 5 to 6 PM and yes, the Imperial Palace is already closed! So all we did was just taking pics from the outside and roam around a  bit enjoying the green pines growing around the palace. Plus, it was raining lightly so we really need to hurry up. But I hope you enjoy the below photos.
