CHIBA PREFECTURE

Ostensibly known as a commuter zone for Tokyo, deeper parts of Chiba’s Boso Peninsula offer up a range of sights for the traveller, whereby its proximity to two international airports (including Narita Airport, which is actually in Chiba) and major train stations of Tokyo, make it perfect for day trips and convenient for jaunts. Aside from its shopping centres and amusement parks (including Disney), the prefecture also has more sedate countryside retreats and beach facilities.
Kamogawa is a great spot for a weekend’s retreat, with boat trips and views of Boso Peninsula, and the hills, coves and beaches of Tateyama make for fine excursions.
