Chiba ranks near the top for agricultural production in Japan, and is the nation’s number-one producer of peanuts and soy sauce. Peanuts are considered to be Chiba’s specialty product, and the “Chiba-kun Bussankan” Souvenir Shop has many peanut-themed snacks on offer. Chiba is situated on the Boso Peninsula, and the snacks made from seaweed harvested off Chiba’s coasts are a local favorite as well. Varieties of Japanese rice crackers, and sweets made using Chiba grown fruits are also available.
