Tomisaki-jinja Shrine (遠見岬神社)
This Shinto shrine honors Amenotomi-no-Mikoto, a deity who legend says came to the Boso Peninsula from Shikoku introducing technology and culture. The shrine's Katsuura Big Hina Matsuri (Doll Festival) runs from late February to early March when about 1,800 Hina dolls adorn the 60 stone steps leading to the precincts. Stop by at night to see the spectacle illuminated.

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.
