Chiba is east of Tokyo and has a peninsula extending into the Pacific Ocean. The size of the prefecture is more than twice the size of Tokyo at approximately 5,000 square kilometers. As a result, it's recommended to rent a car to travel across areas within Chiba.

If you're visiting from Tokyo, many railways and express buses travel within the prefecture. You can also go to popular cities such as Narita or Kisarazu via railway in an hour and a half one-way.

Tokyo Disneyland and Tokyo DisneySea are two theme parks loved by people of all ages from around the world. It's just 15 minutes from Tokyo Station on the JR Keiyo Line to Maihama Station. The world of Disney will greet you the moment you step out of the station.

Since several hotels are also in the area, we recommend using them to see Tokyo Disney Resort and travel in Chiba.

The Narita International Airport area—Japan's gateway to the skies—is used annually by 40 million passengers. Though its present image is very international, it's actually an area known for its long history.

Busy towns centered around temples and shrines like Naritasan Shinshoji Temple, a worship site since ancient times, and Katori Shrine still exist today. These towns will give you a taste of the Edo Period.

Located in west Chiba, Kisarazu overlooks Tokyo Bay and is filled with a variety of things to do. These include shopping at popular outlet parks, climbing Mt. Nokogiri, and exploring rare sights by the seaside.

Accessing the area by car from Tokyo is extremely convenient as the Tokyo Bay Aqua-Line Expressway, a toll road connecting Kanagawa Prefecture's Kawasaki and Kisarazu City, extends across the Tokyo Bay. The night view here can be seen from Umihotaru, a rest stop with shopping and restaurants along the expressway. There are even some people that visit in the evenings and early mornings just to see the scenery.

Yoro Valley is a nature-rich area located roughly in the center of the Boso Peninsula. Travel out to Kamogawa situated along the Pacific Coast to find a popular aquarium and ideal places to interact with nature.

This area is a bit of a trip from Tokyo, as it is one hour and a half by car or two hours and a half by train. Nevertheless, we recommend taking a railway trip if you have the time. From the Kominato Railway, a local train that travels through serene rural sights, you can witness breathtaking landscapes!

The city is also perfect for feasting on tasty seafood and swimming, surfing, and trying other marine activities during the summer! This area is three hours by train or two hours on the JR Limited Express Shiosai from Tokyo Station to Choshi Station. You can also conveniently access the city in two hours via Keisei express bus.

The resort has hotels with shuttle buses that run between your hotel and each Tokyo Disney Resort establishment, which makes it very convenient for overnight stays and going to the parks.

There are several towns nicknamed Little Edo in the outskirts of Tokyo. These towns have been bestowed this title for having retained their old samurai residences and landscape, allowing visitors to experience a sliver of the Edo Period. Chiba Prefecture's Sawara is one such town.

Sawara was a town that prospered due to water transportion during the Edo Period. The entire town has historically preserved its district lined with streets occupied by merchant shops and townhouses (machiya) along the Ono River. If you visit Sawara, it's recommended to hop on board a small boat for a peaceful 30-minute ride downstream (Boat Tour Town Course Fare: 1,300 yen).

The busiest seasons are when the irises and hydrangeas bloom in June, the grand festivities hosted in July, and when autumn approaches in October. If you want to take your time sightseeing, visit after October once the summer heat has subsided.

There is a spot in Chiba Prefecture's Kisarazu City where countless utility poles are lined a kilometer across the tideland in Tokyo Bay. This is Egawa Beach, which created a stir with its striking resemblance to a scene in the Studio Ghibli film "Spirited Away."

The beach is particularly popular the moment just before the sun sets, creating an incredible sight that combines the evening sky and night view of the nearby power plant. The water is like a reflective mirror on days with light wind and little waves. On these days, the waters are said to resemble Salar de Uyuni, a picturesque spot in Bolivia.

Entry into the beach outside of the shellfishing season between mid-March and July is prohibited as a measure for accident prevention. The parking lot near the beach is also a great outlook point. This picturesque shore is ten minutes by taxi from JR Iwane Station.

Nomizo Falls and Kameiwa Cave are other picturesque Chiba spots regarded for their beauty. In Kimitsu City, where these waterfalls are located, Shimizu Stream Square is a natural park not far from the Yoro Valley.

The waterfall flows into the cave. In the early mornings, when the sun shines into the cave's entrance, the sunlight will appear like a shower of light! It's during March and September that the water will reflect the sunlight, making it appear in the shape of a heart. Fireflies flutter about the waterside during early summer while foliage beautifully colors the area come autumn.

The route from Tokyo Station will be an hour and 30 minutes ride on the Axie Express Bus. Alight at the Fureai Park Kimitsu (Japanese) bus stop, then take a taxi for five minutes to Shimizu Stream Square.

Yoro Valley

Yoro Valley, roughly in the center of the Boso Peninsula in southern Chiba, is a popular autumn leaves spot. The valley has a two-kilometer hiking path that passes five waterfalls along the way. This path makes it possible to see waterfalls of all sizes from up close while walking along a promenade enveloped in nature. It's almost impossible to believe that this breathtaking natural beauty is on the outskirts of a metropolis like Tokyo!

Goriyaku no Yu, a hot spring, is situated in the Yoro Valley (1,100 yen entry fee). Any fatigue you have will vanish when soaking in the spacious open-air baths. The hot spring also has a restaurant, making it an ideal resting spot after hiking.

The Kominato Railway Line is an adorable local train colored in red and green that travels mainly through Chiba Prefecture's Ichihara City. This retro train—manufactured between 1961 to 1977—is something you don't often see nowadays.

The railway line passes by several rural areas, making the scenery seen from the windows the main attraction. Eye-popping yellow rape blossoms, in particular, will flood the fields from mid-March to early May.

What's especially famous is the scenery between Satomi Station and Tsukizaki Station. The cherry blossoms will also begin flowering during April, making the railway all the more charming as it passes through the flowers.

14. Isumi Railway: Fun Stopovers Along the Way

Isumi Railway

When it comes to charming retro railways, the Isumi Railway Line is another popular option that travels through Chiba's Isumi City. It connects with the Kominato Railway Line at Kazusa-Nakano Station, so you could even plan a railway journey that involves transferring from one line to the other.

In the spring, 15 kilometers of the 27-kilometer route fills with bright rape blossoms. Of course, it's beautiful to look at them from the window. However, many people exit the train midway to take pictures of the train with the rape blossoms.

Several of the stations have sights to see, like the traditional townscape of Otaki Station and the sprawling rural landscape of Nittano Station. The One-Day Pass, an unlimited train pass for stopovers during your journey (Weekday Pass: 1,200 yen, Weekend & Holiday Pass: 1,500 yen) is highly recommended.

15. Kamogawa Sea World: See Unique Performances by Sea Creatures

Oyama Senmaida

Terraced water paddies made along mountain inclines and valleys are called tanada in Japanese. This type of agriculture emerged to make it possible to farm mountainous areas and sloping terrain. Many people visit the paddies with their cameras to capture the beauty of this landscape today.

Oyama Senmaida is the closest rice terrace to Tokyo. Take the bus from Awa-Kamogawa Station, then alight at Kozuka Station before walking for 20 minutes to the terraces. The rice paddies become filled with water in April and May, creating a spanning view of glassy surfaces that reflect the blue sky. It's a truly marvelous sight!

Gonbei, a restaurant in an old Japanese home near the top of the terraced fields, is where you can eat dishes made with chikko rice noodles. Be sure to relax with this unique regional food after capturing the perfect photo!

The park is located about 15 minutes on foot from JR Ubara Station. A white tower peeking out from the ocean is the park's landmark. This tower has an observation deck on its top floor. Descend further down the tower to observe the sea as if you were in a submarine!

The sight of fish swimming in the ocean is different from what you would observe at an aquarium. Even adults can't help but get excited about this spot. Ubara Risokyo, a scenic spot overlooking the Pacific Ocean, is also located nearby.

Kujukuri Beach, stretching 66 kilometers along the Pacific coastline in east Chiba, is known as a mecca for surfing and swimming. Nearby are spots like the Horizon Observatory (Japanese)—home to an extensive view of the horizon—and the world-famous Inubosaki Lighthouse. There are plenty of fun spots to enjoy aside from marine activities here.

We recommend Seaside Plaza Kujukuri (Japanese) to savor freshly caught seafood. Katagai Harbor is a spot that thrives with sardines and is right in front of the plaza. Their food court is popular, and you can enjoy stalls selling fresh seafood directly from the harbor along with local Kujukuri dishes.

Chiba is a prefecture surrounded by the ocean and is therefore known for its abundant seafood. Choshi is Japan's leading fishing harbor on the Pacific Ocean side of Japan. There, you can delight in dishes made with the freshest bounty of the sea at restaurants near the port.

Hamameshi is one of those restaurants. The kaisen don (seafood bowls), topped with a generous portion of sashimi (raw fish) almost spill out from the bowl, are their most popular dishes. The Sanshoku Don with tuna costs 1,600 yen. Their breakfast set is priced at a reasonable 500 yen.

MAIWAI, directly managed by the Choshi Fisheries Cooperative Association, is another restaurant famous for seafood bowls. The delectable rice bowls are topped with a wide variety of seasonal fish like tuna, flounder, and horse mackerel, which are priced at 1,980 yen. The restaurant is spacious and looks out onto the ocean.

Katsura Tantanmen – Spicy and Tasty! Local Chiba Noodles

Katsura Tantanmen

Katsura’s tantanmen (Szechuan spicy soup), unlike Chinese dandan noodles flavored with sesame paste, is made with onions, chili oil, and ground pork. Whereas Chinese dandan noodles are served without soup, the main feature of this dish is that it is eaten in a miso and soy sauce-based broth.

There are several specialty restaurants in the port town of Katsura, but the most popular is Ezawa, where the dish originated. This dish grew popular in Katsura as it warmed the bodies of fishers returning from the sea.

Kodama, a popular local family restaurant, is another well-known Katsura tantanmen shop. The delicious spiciness is addictive!

A Chiba specialty product, peanuts are something you can't leave out. Approximately 80% of the peanuts produced in Japan are products of Chiba. The prefecture also sells peanuts in various forms as peanut butter and peanut desserts.

The peanut monaka (Japanese) from Nagomi Yoneya, a store on Naritasan Omotesando Road, is a must-try. These adorable peanut-shaped wafer cakes are filled with a sweet boiled peanut filling.
