Chiba Prefecture’s coast offers seaside accommodation ranging from laid-back surf shack-style to Japanese-style resort hotels boasting private beaches. Evening meals served tend to make extensive use of the region’s freshly-caught fish and seafood, while in Ichinomiya Japanese aesthetics can be enjoyed within a shipping container-like unit complete with private outdoor tub!

    With an abundance of surrounding attractions including the rugged Nokogiri-yama (‘sawteeth mountain’), onsens, and Kanaya Ocean Park, this simple yet comfortable accomodation fits the bill perfectly for a short trip to the the Futtsu area: most of the time will be spent enjoying yourself away from the Kinsenkan. Guest rooms are Japanese-style with tatami flooring, contrasting pleasantly with the cool, surf club-like facade. The Kinsenkan’s evening meals, featuring locally-sourced ingredients such as the famed Ise Ebi, have won frequent praise, and a small on-site onsen is also available.

    Flying Sumo Surf Shop Apartments

    This surf shop and surfing school, run by a very amiable native English-speaking couple, offers several cosy, apartment-style rooms as well as a laid-back semi-outdoor cafe where guests can eat. Both Japanese futons and Western-style beds are available to lay your head down on. The Flying Sumo is just a three-minute walk from Onjuku Beach, which as well as being a key surfing spot is also hugely popular with partying youngsters at the height of summer. Though targeted primarily at surfers, the Flying Sumo is also thoroughly enjoyable by those seeking a lazy seaside sojourn.
