    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 The site was big enough but it looked so much outdated.

    Mitsui Outlet Park Makuhari, with good access from downtown Tokyo, is an outlet mall which can be enjoyed by all regardless of age. There are lots of pop-up shops and events offering customers the latest styles and brands. And with baby-strollers for hire, baby changing & feeding rooms, and children’s toilets, it’s a convenient place for parents too.

    沒有很好逛的outlet,只是如果你剛巧在東京駅,然後不知道該要去哪的時候,才會想要到訪這個outlet。這outlet沒有很大,店舖也沒有很多。比較推介的是Columbia的行山鞋,打折後真的很抵買。然後如果你是女生,也推介Une nana cool,這個品牌已經撤出香港,那裡有位來自台灣的店員,很親切有禮。然後如果你喜歡買Design Tshirts Store...

    The expansive Chiba Zoological Park opened in 1985, and has a variety of courses to enjoy, including a petting zoo where you can feed animals or ride a pony. There are barbecue pits and a restaurant so you can spend a full day here. A portion of sales from the popular Lesser Panda Ramen, available at zoo restaurant, goes to support the zoo, as well.

    I went to Chiba Zoological Park on Thursday 28th November 2019. The gardens all around the zoo are fabulous. The animals, however, are kept in very poor conditions. The gorilla, and some of the...

    From Chiba Port Tower at Port Park overlooks Tokyo Bay. The scenery from the fourth floor viewing promenade is wonderful in the daytime, but the evening is even more beautiful. Only visible twice a year in February and October, “Diamond Fuji” is a must see. At these times the sun seems to shine from the peak of Mt. Fuji like a great diamond.

    首都圏にあるタワーの中では、あまり馴染みがない人が多いと思いますが、空いてて自然に触れられ、東京駅からも40分ほどなのでアクセスもしやすいです。タワー感は味わえます。 I believe almost peoples dont know kind of Tower in Kanto area but not crowd in every time and relaxing of nature...

    "Ichihara Elephant Kingdomhas 10 elephants, more than anywhere else in Japan, and 100 other kinds of animals live there, too, including camels and hippos. After a show in which the elements ""play soccer"" and ""dance,"" visitors can have their pictures taken while riding an elephant. Visitors who make reservations can ride free shuttle buses from Takataki Station on the Kominato Railway or from the Ichihara-Tsurumai Bus Terminal."

    The most depressing place I have seen in Japan. The cage look disgusting and the elephant so depressed. Horrible place.

    Displaying 450 works by approximately 50 artists, ranging from great masters to young artists, the Hoki Museum is the first museum in Japan dedicated to works of realism. Designed in three stories, one above ground, two below, the layered galleries are long corridors, with a section of the building appearing to float in air. Reservations are recommended for the very popular Italian cuisine restaurant Hanau located inside the museum.

    Great museum for realism. Cool building. It has a cafe and Italian restaurant. An hour from Tokyo but well worth the visit

B block has a wide open grassy lawn, and C block has a traditional Japanese garden, Mihamaen, with the teahouse Shoraitei. F block holds the Chiba Marine Stadium, which hosts not only baseball games but a variety of other events as well.

    近隣にZOZOマリンスタジアムや幕張メッセもあり、イベントが定期的に開催されているにぎやかな場所です。ただ、なにもない時はとても静かで、近所の住人も利用しているようです。ぼーっとしたい時、イベントで騒ぎたい時いずれにしてもオススメです。 ZOZO Marine Stadium and Makuhari Messe has near here also has many events...

    Located in Mihama Ward, Chiba City, ZOZOMARINE Stadium is the home base of the Chiba Lotte Marines baseball team. There are lots of facilities and activities for kids, so even parents with young children can enjoy watching a baseball game here. ZOZOMARINE Stadium is famous for its fireworks, which are let off from the nearby beach, and are a really impressive sight.

    This soccer arena, part of Soga Sports Park in Kawasaki-cho, Chuo Ward, Chiba City, is the J League's Ichihara Chiba JEF United's home stadium. Stores open inside the facility and a food stall area is set up outside that attracts a crowd while games are in progress.

    アウェイチームの観戦で初めて参戦。 コンパクトなサッカー専用スタジアムで見やすさは抜群ですが、予算のせいかゴール前の芝はだいぶ傷んでました。 駅から徒歩10-15分ですが、千葉から先はJRの本数が少ないので都内からのアクセスは微妙です。

    The collection at Chiba City Museum of Art focuses on works by artists with a close connection to the Boso Peninsula and paintings of scenes from the Boso Peninsula. Its collection includes paintings from the Edo period (1603?1868), woodblock prints from the Edo through early Showa periods (1926?1989), and Japanese and Western modern art. It has no permanent exhibits but instead sponsors rotating exhibitions and exhibitions of its holdings, lectures, and workshops. The museum is housed in the remodeled and restored Chiba branch of Kawasaki Bank and shares the building with the ward office of Chuo-ku. There is also a restaurant and a library in the building.

    Not a grand gallery but provide a good glimpse of works from local artists. The set up is nice and is worth a visit if you are in the area. The very friendly atmosphere made me feeling welcome...

It features a planetarium and an area with exhibits. The exhibit area is divided into three sections and offers interactive display each such as: “Geo Town” —where you can learn about the earth’s environment and space, “Techno Town” —where you can learn about science and technology in our daily lives, and “Wonder Town” —where you can learn about sound, light, and numbers.

    Original Maker Umizuri Koen is a sea fishing facility located inside Yorogawa Seaside Park. Visitors can enjoy sea fishing on a wharf with guardrails that extends into the water parallel to the shore. There are also shops that sell or rent fishing gear, restaurants, and toilets available. Since the wharf is well monitored and a monitor staff is stationed, this facility is easy for families and beginners to use. This is a city-sponsored public facility, so it is available for experiential field trips by elementary and middle school groups. Among the regular events held here are fishing contests, fishing lessons, and releases of young fish into the sea.

    コロナで入場規制されており、朝6時前についても、整理券がもらえませんでした。名前を書いて順番待ちになり、2番目でしたが、入ったのは8時くらい。なので、実質2時間待たされた感じです。とはいえ、施設的には本当に良くできていると思われます(というのもわたしは釣りをしないので…)。ガチな釣り人が多く、かなり釣る人も。子供でも釣れるとありますが、それはラッキーなだけで、うちは1匹も釣れませんでした。なので...

    The Ichihara Lakeside Museum underwent renewal and re-opened in 2013. It is an extremely charming art museum that makes great use of its location on the coast of Lake Takataki. First and foremost, the diverse exhibits are endlessly fascinating, but you will also find a museum shop with an array of local Ichihara products and original goods with the museum logo. And you can enjoy a great pizza restaurant that uses mainly ingredients from Boso.

    ロケーションや建物や展示内容はおすすめできるが、受付が事務的でチケット購入時も帰る時も「ありがとうございます」の挨拶もなく、この手の美術館では珍しく残念。改善の余地あり。料金も800円と高め、規模から言って500-600円程度が妥当と考える。

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.
