Nemophila field at Hitachi Seaside Park 2019
This day was the last chance to see this amazing scenery in the clear day before the Japanese long vacation “Golden Week”.
It is a collection of public holidays of the Japanese calendar and this park is very crowded in this period ( I hate crowds! ).
Official website said that nemophila flowers weren’t fully bloomed until the day before that day, so I didn’t expect to be able see the perfect scenery.
But the announcement changed to “Best time to see” in the morning of that day.
I was so lucky!
But unfortunately I caught a cold…
Although my condition wasn’t good, I did my best to shoot this scenery as beautiful as possible.
To take this picture, I got down on all fours, put my iPhoneXsMax closer to the flowers and shot it by 1.5 times zoom to avoid blurry.

I arrived at the Sea breeze Entrance at 9:15.
It was 15 minutes earlier of the opening time, but people made a long line in front of the entrance gate.
When the popular flowers such as Nemophila are fully bloomed, it is very crowded from morning.
Sea breeze Entrance is the most nearest to Miharashi Hill where you can see the nemophila field among the 4 gates in this park.
