Scenic View in Red! Kochia in Hitachi Seaside Park & One Bunch of Aromatic Kyoho Grape Picking / From Shinjuku

Highlights

1. Kochia at Hitachi Seaside Park: Kochia (summer cypress) turn the Miharashi hills from summer green to autumn crimson during late September through early October against the backdrop of the ocean and sky. Gradation of the colors is attractive as well as the complete red in the view. *The best season to view Kochia is usually from early July to late October (Red Kochia's season is mid-late October). ※Flower or autumn leaves viewing tours are organized in accordance with the viewing season of previous years. However, the viewing season varies, depending on the weather or climate of the year. 2. Sakatsura Isozaki Shrine: The approach to the shrine with trees of over 300 years old making a tunnel is mysterious. Visit a shrine where you can feel the power of nature. 3. Taste of autumn: 1 bunch of Kyoho grape picking experience! ※This is not all-you-can-pick and eat style. 4. Bento box lunch is included: Relish a Makunouchi style lunch box prepared by the long established bento shop Mannnenya in Ibaraki. Tea is not included. Also, get a popular melon bread from Tomobe service area as a snack. The tour codes are different according to the departure place.
