It’s a pretty spring scene with a blue-sky, blue carpet of Nemophila.
In Japan, the national Hitachi Kaihin Park in Ibaraki Prefecture is very well known, but there is a place where people who think it is a little distant can enjoy it in Kyushu as well.
The scale is not the Hitachi Kaihin Park, but the 1.5 million Nemophila blooming on a 15,000-square-meter site are worth seeing!
Would you like to go to Uminonakamichi Seaside Park on the first day of a pleasant spring?
The carpet of Nemophila with a light blue color
The “Uminonakamichi Seaside Park” is the fifth national park established nationwide in “Uminonakamichi” that is located across Hakata Bay from the urban area of Fukuoka City.
The area is about 300 hectares, and it’s very wide!
In addition to the seasonal flowers that can be enjoyed all over the year, there are many areas such as the Animal Forest and Children’s Square, so this park is a place where you can enjoy a memorable and wonderful day.
The Marine World, an aquarium that was renovated in 2017 under the theme of the Kyushu Sea, is in the immediate vicinity.
At this nice “Uminonakamichi Seaside Park,” from mid-April to early May, a pale blue sweep of Nemophila can be enjoyed in the “Hana no Oka(flower hill)” area of the park.
The 1.5 million Nemophila carpets blooming on a 15,000-square-meter site are at first glance valuable.
There are small hills with solid walkways, so you can enjoy beautiful scenery from various angles.
As it is a short flower of Nemophila, you can see it even if a small child enters.
Seen from a low position, you seem to be walking in the sea of flowers.
You can’t let go of the camera here because you can take beautiful pictures.
The opening time of Uminonakamichi Seaside Park is from 9:30 to 17:30.
In the park, it blooms with a variety called “Insignis Blue,” also known as “Ruri Karakusa.”
Ruri color is a slightly purplish, bright blue, and truly perfect.
The delicate contrast with the white color is nice and gentle to the eyes!
So it’s getting popular.
The opening time of Uminonakamichi Seaside Park is from 9:30 to 17:30. (from 3/1 to 10/31)
It’s sure that you would like to enjoy such beautiful scenery from early morning, but be careful as you cannot enter the park until 9:30 in the morning.
However, it is a very popular nemophila carpet, so it is inevitable that it will be crowded if it is a holiday during the period.
Please go out with plenty of time.
Anyway, if you want to enjoy the park, it is recommended that you rent a bicycle here.
Besides Nemophila, there are many nice areas.
This time, we introduced only Nemophila on the Flower Hill, but in the park we also enjoy other beautiful flowers in various places.
You can also enjoy a variety of leisure activities, such as the “Animal Forest” where we can interact with animals such as squirrels monkeys and kapibara.
In late March and early May, they held a variety of events called Flower Picnics on the Uminonakamichi, and on weekends there are a lot of animal-to-animal events.
Let’s spend spring one day with a fun and memorable time in the “Uminonakamichi Seaside Park” full of play!
