Highlights of Ibaraki Prefecture, Japan
Aired: Jan. 30, 2020
Ibaraki Prefecture is about 2 hours away from Narita Airport by express bus. A booklet compiling photographs of the prefecture’s beautiful sceneries, adorned with enticing descriptions in English, was published to showcase its appeal to more overseas tourists. Changing seasons, breathtaking nature, profound spirituality nurtured by its history, and more… In this segment, we rediscover Ibaraki Prefecture’s charms through the eyes of the booklet’s editor.
Ms. Suzuki who was in charge of making this outstanding booklet has not only an eye for the nature and beauty in Ibaraki. Her interview was inspiring and following her words in melodic and pleasant Japanese (I wish I could understand it) had a meaningful content that touched me.
This segment introduces the beauty of Ibaraki Prefecture. The beauty of the flowers at the Hitachi Seaside Park is truly extraordinary. This segment has featured places worth visiting in the Ibaraki area. The booklet published about Ibaraki is also very beautiful in terms of color composition and images.
The landscapes used in the booklet covers are so spectacular. I never knew how much thought goes into creating a magazine cover, and I now have a greater appreciation for it. I would like to visit Hitachi Seaside Park to see those landscapes with my own eyes.
