Hitachi Seaside Park
At Hitachi Seaside Park (国営ひたち海浜公園) in Hitachinaka, Ibaraki prefecture, Japan, the flowers tell time. Each season a different variety of flower blossoms, soaking the Miharashi No Oka hill in color. Visitors in spring encounter a bright blue hill of 4.5 million nemophilas. In fall, the 36,000 kochia plants, a type of large herb that grows in brushes clustered on the hill, make the transition from electric green to dark crimson clumps. Soon, pink, white and red cosmo flowers will come into bloom. Depending on the season you visit, you can even get a blue, red, or pink-and-white ice cream cone to match the color of the hill!

Big Dripper is a robotic sculpture created by Giles Hall in 2011.
It is a concept based on Harold Edgerton’s Piddler. Edgerton’s Piddler, also known as a “Time Fountain”, uses a stroboscopic light source to highlight individual drops of water in a constant stream of liquid.
Check out the video - The drips appear to hang in space as if frozen in time.
