Last Tuesday, I took a day off from work and had a solo trip to Ibaraki for the second time. My first time was when I went to see the stunning Nemophila flowers last Spring! Thanks to my friend Ashley for giving me advice about the best time to visit this magical place.
If you've been following my blog since last year, you would know how much I love nature and flower parks. I'm really motivated to save up so I could travel more around my favorite country. My goal is to visit all prefectures here in Japan! :") *wish me luck!!*
For now, let me take you on a journey from Ueno to Ibaraki!
More photos as you scroll down below ~
Goal next summer 2017: see the green kochia!
Bought my limited express train ticket inside the train station. There's an English guide to those who are wondering.. so no worries!
