Hitachinaka Destination

Area Overview

Hitachinaka is a seaside town located in Ibaraki prefecture, about 75 minutes from Tokyo.

It is best known for the famous Hitachi Seaside Park, where visitors come to enjoy the Nemophila flowers in spring and Kochia in autumn.

Also, as Hitachinaka is a coastal city, it is a great place to enjoy seafood, with the Nakaminato fish market (那珂湊おさかな広場/Nakaminato Osakana Hiroba) offering good sushi and sashimi restaurants that are open in the morning.
