Next to Tokyo & Home of Narita Airport

Visit Chiba is the official sightseeing, tourism, and tourist attraction information website of Chiba Prefecture, Japan. Chiba is the home of Narita International Airport and is conveniently located next to Tokyo on a peninsula along Japan’s Pacific coast. Chiba's extensive train and highway bus networks allow visitors to access the rich nature, hidden countryside gems, historic districts, local temples and shrines, seaside hot spring resorts, and world-famous surf breaks found here near Tokyo. Experience Japanese food culture and enjoy fresh seafood too, as Chiba’s mild climate and unique geography make it a hub of agriculture and fishing. We hope to see you soon!

Hondo-ji Temple Hydrangea Report: Yesterday (June 17th), we visited Hondo-ji Temple, where the hydrangeas are in full bloom! Hondo-ji Temple is located just outside Tokyo, about a 10-minute walk from Kita-Kogane Station on the JR Joban Line. Visit soon to see these beautiful blossoms all around the temple grounds, or if you can’t make it here during the hydrangea season, plan to come for the stunning autumn foliage this fall!

You never know what hidden gems you’ll find when traveling around Japan, like this one: the rakan statues at Kotoku-ji Temple. They represent a gathering of exalted Buddhist monks, each one sporting its own unique features. It’s a work in progress, with the number of rakan to eventually reach 500. Which one is your favorite?

The Inubosaki Lighthouse is one of my favorite hidden gems found on the Chiba coast. It was constructed in 1874 and is listed on the International Association of Marine Aids to Navigation and Lighthouse Authorities’ “100 lighthouses in the world that are historic and architectural monuments.” Take the stairs to the top for a panoramic view of Cape Inubo and the Pacific Ocean, and then stop by the “INUBOW TERASU TERRACE ‘’ market for some dining and shopping.

The lighthouse is about a 10-minute walk from Inubo Station on the Choshi Electric Railway.  The Choshi Electric Railway can be accessed by transferring at JR Choshi Station, which can be reached in less than 2 hours from Tokyo by limited-express train.

The @space.aviation.jp “Tokyo Nightscape Helicopter” tour takes off here in Chiba City at the Chibawangan Heliport. We took the “Double Tower Course” that follows a 33-minute round-trip route starting along Tokyo Bay, then loops around Tokyo Sky Tree and Tokyo Tower. This was truly one of the best travel experiences I’ve had not only in my 12 years living in Japan, but really in my entire life, as I never thought I could get such a unique and all-encompassing view of the sprawling wonder that is Tokyo. The “Double Tower Course” we took costs 88,000 yen per flight and seats up to 3 people, but there are also other more economical options like the 10,000 yen “Chiba Course” and more routes in the works for future tours!

Special thanks to Kengo Kobayashi @iamnotkengo for riding along with us and providing the amazing still photos appearing in this video.
