This Japanese Seaside Park's Fiery Transformation In Autumn Will Blow Your Mind


Farzana •  Oct 09, 2017


Autumn isn't just about falling, withering leaves. The changing colours of floras and faunas at Hitachi Seaside Park is a sight you don't want to miss! Marvel as the hills draped by over 32,000 adorable green kochia bushes turn into hues of red, teasing your eyes to an Autumn you don't see coming.

Watch these Miharashi hills change colours from evergreens to crimsons while the breeze from the ocean kisses your skin. Red, white and pink cosmos will greet you at the bottom of the hill, looking almost like a strawberry sundae from afar ?
