While travelling to Japan, one of the most visited countries in the world, landing at the bustling Narita International Airport sums up most visitors’ experience of the Chiba prefecture.
Few know that this region has much more to offer than just serving as a connecting port city known for its peanuts. Home to historic temples and shrines, surf-worthy shorelines, scenic mountains, flowering fields, sake breweries, and a soy museum, this area is the perfect playground for culinary enthusiasts, culture junkies and nature lovers alike.
Located just over 20 miles from and offering views of the neighboring Metropolitan city, Chiba is considered Tokyo’s Secret Backyard. While its accessible sandy beaches, seaside views, and vast landscapes make it a popular summer destination and a golf mecca among locals in the Kanto region, it will also serve as host for some of the sporting events for the Tokyo Olympic and Paralympic Games in 2021.
Chiba’s natural beauty additionally plays a role in producing a bounty of the country’s ingredients, giving the region another tasty moniker as Tokyo’s Kitchen.
As the destination looks toward 2021 and welcoming international visitors back, the CCB is proud to announce activities and attractions on both land and sea open for tourists to experience this rich region of Japan.
