Kochia Carnival



Welcome to Kochia Carnival !!

                  Fall comes here to change kochia’s color green to red.

          Kochia turns Miharashi-no-oka into all red.

                  At the foot of the hill, cosmos sways in the wind, paint the whole Hitachi Seaside                         Park with fall color along with ‘kochia red’


     Under the bright sun kochia at Miharashi-no-Oka has grown with energy in summer.

      When you feel fall in the wind, it begins turning green to red.

       And it’s time for an enjoyable Kochia carnnibal!!


     During the festival, you can participate in a stamp rally in which you get many stamps on a special booklet. Wonderful presents will be given to some by lot.

And there are some events during the festival “Come, Watch, Touch Kochia”
