Oohi-jinja Shrine (Funabashi Daijingu Shrine) (意富比神社(船橋大神宮))

This Shinto shrine is three minutes on foot from the Keisei Main Line's Daijingushita Station and 15 minutes on foot from Funabashi Station on the JR Sobu Line. It was founded when Yamato Takeru-no-Mikoto enshrined Amaterasu Sume Omikami there for worship after suppressing Japan's eastern regions. It is the largest and oldest shrine in the Funabashi region. Sumo wrestling takes place at its main annual festival on October 20 and has a history of more than 400-years. It's even recorded the shogun Tokugawa Ieyasu watched Sumo bouts here.

          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.
