If you want to visit a place which is pretty wide open and where you can leisurely bicycle around a course, then this is pretty nice. Along the course is a number of walking areas where you can park and enjoy the scenery. They also have some carnival rides and games for the kids. I heard that it can be very crowded in the spring and fall, but I happened to go during a lull. Given the current Covid situation, being outside with few people was relaxing.

I missed the additional fun to rent a bike when I was here. A scenic place to visit. You'll have fun for sure.

Hitachi Seaside Park facing the Pacific Ocean, the park offers 4 season flowers in large gardens throughout the year.
In spring, narcissuses, tulips and phenomenal nemophila (baby blue eyes) attract lots of visitors around the world.
In early summer, poppies and roses, and in summer, zinnias and sunflowers, bloom.
In autumn, you can enjoy spectacular kochia (summer cypress) and cosmos flowers.
In winter, ice tulips can be seen, making for a rich complement of flora throughout the year. Besides, the park also allow you to enjoy nature include the Rinkan Athletic Grounds, Barbecue Zone, and Cycling Course.
To get here, you can take Hitachi Line from Ueno > Katsuta which is covered by JR Pass but unfortunately you’ve take a bus
from Katsuta there to park. It is definitely a unique attraction which makes the money justifiable. Make sure you check online the type/species of flower blooming status, during the season before your go. So, you won't get upset if you expect to see certain species over there.

Such a great park and huge! It's really far from Tokyo but there's a Costco across the street so that almost balances out. Also it closes relatively early (5pm).
