    Chiba Pref. Chibashi Mihama-ku Nakase 2-1
    A convention center capable of hosting domestic and international trade fairs, product fairs, exhibitions, events, and meetings. There’s always a host of fun programs being conducted at Makuhari Messe. In addition to 11 exhibition halls, there’s also numerous conference rooms, restaurants, and other facilities; the size of the structure will astound you. The shortest access routes for international exhibition halls 1-8 and 9-11, the Makuhari Event Hall, and the international conference rooms all differ, so be sure to check where the event you’re interested in is before heading out.

    Makuhari Messe looked a little shabby compared to Tokyo Big Site. The site was big enough but it looked so much outdated.

    Chiba Pref. Naritashi Narita 1
    Naritasan Shinshoji Temple is a lead temple in the Chisan school of Shingon located in Narita, Chiba Prefecture. In order to suppress a revolt by Tairano Masakado which broke out in the Heian period, it began with the fact that Kobo Daishi was spiritually enlightened by the high priest Kancho as Acala was enshrined and became the principal image of worship at the temple. Many well-known figures had strong faith including such figures as Minamotono Yoritomo, Mito Mitsukuni and Ichikawa Danjuro, and Narita Fudo prompted many commoners to have faith. On the grounds of the temple, there are very big gardens maintained which cover an area of approximately 3.5 times that of Tokyo Dome, and you can see seasonal plants in the garden.

    安政年間に本堂として建てられ、大本堂が建てられた昭和期に現在の地に移築されました。本堂として建てられたとしたら、少し小ぶりかなと感じます。現在の本堂の西側に在ります。

    Katori Jingu shrine is located in the Katori district of Katori City. It is the Grand Head Shrine of all the Katori shrines in Japan, of which there are around 400. The shrine is dedicated to the worship of Futsunushi-no-okami, a deity who appears in the Japanese legend “Izumo no Kuniyuzuri.” The Main Hall and the Rou-mon (two-storied gate), which were built in 1700, have both been designated as national Important Cultural Properties.

    Katori Jingu Shrine is amazing! I found out about this place through Katoris official English Facebook page, Little Edo Sawara. They talk about the history of the shrine and have amazing pictures...

    The Museum of Aeronautical Sciences is the place to learn about the science of aviation and aviation technology. Museum visitors can enjoy the outdoor exhibition plaza, which displays Cessnas, helicopters, and other aircraft. The indoor portion of the museum contains exhibits of aviation-related art and serves as the site for pre-licensing seminars for aspiring aeronautical radio operators. The museum shop sells scale models of aircraft and a large selection of other aviation-related souvenirs and novelties.

    Big & spacious place to walk around to view the aeroplanes. I did not buy tickets to enter the building. I just hung around outside & walked around to peek into the aeroplanes.

Nokogiri was selected as one of “Kanto’s Top 100 Fuji Views.” If you make use of the early morning service on New Year’s Day, you can enjoy a great view of the “Red Fuji” sunrise.

    With 500 yen it saves you from puffing up the hill. Nice views on the ropeway car. Once you get off at the hill top, head to the observatory above the station for a small souvenir counter and a small...

    The shops and restaurants at Roadside Station Chikura Shiokaze Okoku rest area sell popular unique souvenirs and novelty items typical of the southern Boso Peninsula and the town of Chikura.

    "Kiyomizu-dera Temple is located near Otowa no Mori Park in Kamone, Misaki-cho, in the city of Isumi. It has long history, having been built in 807 by Sakanoue no Tamuramaro. Its principal votive figure is the Thousand-Armed Kannon, and this temple is the 32nd of the 33 places sacred to the bodhisattva Kannon in Bando (the old name for the Kanto Region). Within the precincts are sculptures of the 47 samurai of the Ako domain whose plot to avenge their lord was immortalized in the play ""Chushingura."""

    板東観音巡礼の26番目として、この32番札所を参拝しました。 これまでで指折りに「歴史を感じられる」素晴らしい寺でした。 いすみ市を訪れたのは久しぶりでした。 残念だったのは、行程で度々見かけた、景観を壊すソーラーパネル。 この寺がある周囲の山同様、自然環境を大切にしてもらいたいものです。

    Chiba Pref. Tateyamashi Funakata 835
    "The popular name for Daifukuji Temple is ""Gake Kannon"" (""Cliff Kannon""). Located in Funakata in the city of Tateyama, it was founded by the Nara period (eighth century) monk Gyoki, who was on a walking pilgrimage of the eastern provinces. It is said that he carved an image of Eleven-headed Kannon into the cliff face of Mt. Funakata as a way of praying for safety on the seas and bountiful fishing for the local fishermen. A temple devoted to Kannon is built in front of the image to guard it, and from inside, visitors can enjoy a panoramic view of Tateyama Bay and Izu Oshima Island."

    "Hondo-ji Temple is a famous temple of the Nichiren sect that has been nicknamed ""the hydrangea temple"" and ""the autumn leaf temple."" In early summer, over 10,000 hydrangea plants and 5,000 irises adorn the temple grounds with their blossoms, and in autumn, about 1,000 maple trees turn a brilliant red and yellow."

The Boso Peninsula forms the main body of Chiba prefecture, and this is where you’ll find its endless warm water beaches and jagged mountains. Further inland, Narita - most famous as the home of Narita Airport - is a secret haven of tradition and history in the form of centuries-old Shinshoji Temple and quaint wooden Edo buildings. Chiba prefecture is also home to both Tokyo Disneyland and Tokyo DisneySea.
