A nice and varied course to learn the game
10 Helpful / 0 Not
Pros: Lots of variation in shots, from open to wooded.
Various elevations for the pins
You can tell by the pins that the course is almost teaching you different types of shots/approaches.
Beautiful and relaxing area, not a ton of players so you don't have to hurry.
The course is well maintained.
Very low chance to lose discs.
Free score cards and loaner discs.
Cons: No long distance shots at all.
All pins are par 3
Murder hornets in the summer (just be careful)
You have to pay to enter the park the course is located in. (450 yen)
Tee pads are a bit old
Other Thoughts: I think this is a perfect course to learn to play the game. I think there is enough variation here that even more experienced players could still enjoy it. It might be a "pitch and putt" course but its still fun. I have heard there are 27 holes but when I was there it was only 18. The park is wonderful and has tons of other stuff to do as well.

Hitachi Seaside Park is a pay to enter national park that features carnival style rides, food booths, and recreation activities like motocross, mini golf, and disc golf to name a few. The park location is, as you would expect, in close proximity to the ocean and has a reputation for being windy. The disc golf course within the park is to the right of a giant open recreational field where many picnic and lay about. Most of the the fairways are spread throughout the woods, a few tees throw from the giant field's edge into the woods. Like most Japanese courses, the layout and hole distances aren't overly imaginative. The short course uses fairway narrowness and a couple slight variances in elevation to create most of the difficulty. Greens can play a little fast with all the pine straw covering the ground. Clearly, the design is best suited for beginners and senior citizens. Experienced players will likely be bored to tears. Recently, 9 holes have been removed to accommodate for the upcoming flower festival and will likely be replaced after everything has wilted at some point in the early the summer.

Good Course, Beautiful Park
Pros: Holes are varied. They range from heavily wooded areas to open air, with decent elevation changes being the more technical shots. It's well-maintained in a beautiful park. The grass is trimmed and the woods are clean.
Cons: No distance shots - most were between 40 and 80 meters. They also didn't have the last 9 holes (of 27 total) set up. The tee-boxes were there, but the baskets and signs were taken down. My guess is because it's summer time with a lot of people in the open field that could get hurt by flying discs.
Other Thoughts: The GPS coordinates for the park are completely wrong. I will try to update them, but it's at "Hitachi Seaside Park" on the east coast of Japan, north of Tokyo. 410 Yen for entry. Overall, it's a very nice course. The park itself would be a good place to take the family, while you spend quality time on the golf course :-)
