Fall Portrait Session in the magical Hitachi Seaside Park

Without planing the perfect fall portrait session in the picturesque Hitachi Seaside Park in Ibaraki Prefecture, my wife and I have traveled to see the flower wonder, not far from Tokyo.

It’s been a long time since my wife and I wanted to see the very well known Hitachi Seaside Park. I must confess, as a professional portrait photographer, I’m impressed even if I was there in the autumn, when all the flowers were cleared to prepare the soil for the next steps. We were quite unlucky, missing the Cosmos Flowers by three days only… an absolute wonder for flowery portraits.

Mini fall portrait session in Hitachi Seaside Park

Once or twice a year, my wife will agree to stay in front of my camera. Of course, not for a whole lot of time, but it will do nicely for a mini fall portrait session, as it happened a few days ago in Hitachi Seaside Park in Ibaraki Prefecture. This park was on our bucket list ever since we moved to Japan, but as with all things, time got in our way. From our place in Tsuzuki-Ku, I drove just a little over two hours on the highways.

Even if we missed all the other flowers, we still enjoyed the beautiful weather and made some fantastic portraits between the Pampas Grass bushes. The park is a lovely place for any families with kids, and I recommend it for family portrait sessions, especially because it is not far from Tokyo. After the family shoot, everyone can enjoy the time in the park, making the most of the day.

Suppose you’re looking to hire a professional photographer for a family photoshoot in Hitachi Seaside Park. In that case, I’m more than happy to capture your family’s beautiful moments, be it for the winter, spring, summer, or fall portrait session. I genuinely believe each season has its vibe, and I love the clear difference between the seasons Japan has to offer.

My wife and I enjoyed the thrilling adventure of the slow Ferris Wheel, the perfect chance to see the whole park from above.

Families’ dream: one day trip to Hitachi Seaside Park from Tokyo

Nowadays, people travel to different places worldwide to have that one portrait taken at a highly instagrammable place. Japan is one of the most desired places to visit by anyone, and it is clear why. With sites like Hitachi Seaside Park, no one can say no to a fall portrait session. Memories for a lifetime.

The park has a playground, a mini amusement area to fulfill most desires, covering a wide range of ages: a Giant Ferris Wheel called the “Flower ring,” a cycling course, a picnic area called Grassland. For every family living in Tokyo, making a one day trip to Hitachi Seaside Park is a must.

The admission fees are small, 410 yen for an adult, 210 yen for seniors, and 80 yen for children. Parking fees are small compared to the parking fees in Tokyo: 510 yen for the whole day (the cost for only 30 mins in downtown).
