Few images better represent the Chiba countryside in spring than a landscape checkered with freshly planted rice paddies. Thanks to its mild climate and relative abundance of arable land, Chiba ranks among the 5 most agriculturally productive prefectures in Japan, and in many ways is the breadbasket – or perhaps more accurately the “rice basket” – of the Greater Tokyo area. During your next trip to Tokyo, if you’re looking to immerse yourself in idyllic countryside scenes like the one pictured here, just take a train ride across the border and cruise through towns and villages of rural Chiba.

A scene from the historic Sawara ‘Machinami’ townscape in Chiba’s Katori City. Sawara was once one of the major hubs of commerce along the network of waterways that led to Edo, the former name of Tokyo. A section of the old town along the Ono River remains preserved to let this legacy live on today. In fact, many of the wooden buildings and old storehouses here have been maintained for over a century and some the shops have even been in operation for a dozen or more generations.

🚉 The Sawara Koryukan visitor center is a 15-minute walk from JR Sawara Station
