A Truly Magical Scene Rendered by More than Five Million Recently Bloomed Small Blue Flowers

Due to the pandemic, the typically packed Hitachi Seaside Park in the country of Japan has been closed from April 4. Despite the fame of the sakura blossoms, the flowers in this park in North Tokyo reveals a scene from a fairy tale.

As autumn comes, these tiny blue flowers (Nemophila) become deep red, thanks to Kochia plants that transform to red from green during this season. In all 469 acres of the park, there are other flowers as well such as tulips of the Tamago Flower Garden and the daffodils from the Narcissus Garden.

If you cannot wait to see them, you can have a virtual tour!

The area used to be an airport for the military after the first World War and then became a bombing range for the Air Force (US). The Japanese government had to fight to get it back.
