The Vibrant Wonderland of Hitachi Seaside Park in Japan

During the summer, we’re always daydreaming of visiting an exotic, adventurous or mystical destination. Actually, I lied. We’re always daydreaming about these places — probably because there’s something about them that captures our senses and somehow lures us away from the everyday routine we call life.

While the images above may appear to be digitally-altered, they’re 100 percent real, and were taken at Hitachi Seaside Park in Japan.

There are over 4.5 million blossoming flowers that envelop Hitachi Seaside Park throughout the year, though the most lovely appear in the the spring.

Photographers from around the world travel to this location to snap photos of the flowers, but they are oftentimes left having to Photoshop out the countless tourists roaming through this vibrant wonderland.

Check out the slideshow above for some of the most breathtaking images.

We are definitely planning on visiting Hitachi Seaside Park if we ever make our way out to the Ibaraki Prefecture.
