Haraoka Pier holds its place as a humble but locally famous destination along the Chiba coast. Its sparse wooden and concrete frame only goes out a few dozen meters into the sea, and a single strand of lights runs along the left side to illuminate it at night. It has provided the setting for numerous photographs, commercials and films, and is also known as a Mt. Fuji viewing spot. The best chance to catch a view of Mt. Fuji from here is on clear days, or as pictured, when the colors of the evening sky outline its imposing silhouette on the horizon. In any weather conditions though, this off-the-beaten-path location tends to keep a special place in the hearts of those who visit.

📍 Tateyama City, Sunosaki Shrine

On clear days, Chiba’s Tateyama City is known as one of the best places to catch views of Mt. Fuji from across the sea. No matter where you are along the Tateyama coast, you’re never going to find yourself too far from a Fuji lookout spot. Tateyama’s location along the west coast of Chiba also makes stunning sunsets here a regular occurrence, and for a couple days in both May and July you can even catch a glimpse of the Diamond Fuji–a view of the sun setting directly over Mt. Fuji’s summit.

🍜 Chuka-soba Tomita is one of Japan’s most highly-regarded ramen chains and its home base can be found right here in Chiba’s Matsudo City, just a 5-minute walk from Matsudo Station. They are best known for their tsukemen, a type of ramen where noodles are served with a bowl of dipping sauce.

📷 Pictured: Tsukemen paired with ‘tokusen-zenbu-nose’ (“everything” special topping). Slices of tender “TOKYO X” brand pork—each one a different cut and uniquely seasoned—are delicately arranged alongside a giant ‘shumai’ dumpling.

📣 The legendary owner Mr. Tomita is present here in the kitchen preparing each dish with precision, making a visit here a very exclusive experience. In fact, you’ll need one of the numbered tickets that are distributed here from 8 AM each morning to enter the restaurant. Tickets have a designated time slot on them, and you return to the restaurant for your meal when it’s your assigned time. Since this is such a popular place, tickets can even run out within the first 30 minutes!

ℹ️ If you’d like to try this chain’s famous flavors in a more casual setting, head to Tomita Shokudo, located just outside Matsudo Station. Other Tomita branches can be found around Chiba Prefecture and Tokyo, including one shop right inside JR Chiba Station.
