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.

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.
