Otaki Castle Museum (千葉県立中央博物館 大多喜城分館)

3.5

Museum / Science Museum

This history museum’s permanent exhibition focuses on Boso’s castle and its castle town, both in the medieval era and in recent times. The museum exhibits artifacts related to it, like armor, antique equipment, and ancient documents, as well as materials on life in samurai society and the castle town. Since Honda Tadakatsu was once the castle’s lord, it was built on the famous Otaki ruins of the Kazusa clan’s inner citadel (Tadakatsu was one of the four generals that served Tokugawa Ieyasu).

          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.
