Nicknamed "baby blue eyes," nemophila are actually native to California, but the 4.5 million flowers that bloom at Hitachi Seaside Park each spring are one of the world's most impressive displays of the blossom. But that's not even the best part. If you look closely, you'll notice that the fields of blue nemophila are also dotted with delicate red poppies.

Be warned — the park is very popular with tourists making it difficult to get that perfect Instagram shot of the flowers without people in the background.
