Location of CHIBA in JAPAN
Chiba (千葉市,) is the capital city of Chiba Prefecture, Japan. It is located approximately 40 km east of the center of Tokyo on Tokyo Bay. Chiba City became a government designated city in 1992. Its population as of 2008 is approximately 960,000.
At the northern end of the Kujukuri-hama Beach is Cape Inubo-saki, the easternmost peninsula in the Kanto region. Cape Inubo-saki is a 20-meter-high marine abrasion platform. A promenade stretches along the rocky beach, where you can enjoy the sight of rough waves and feel the dynamic blasts of wind directly off the ocean.
Around Cape Inubo-saki, there is a chalky lighthouse built in 1874, "Chikyu-no-maruku-mieru-oka," the observation platform of the Earth, from which you can see the arched horizon, and also the Togawa fishing port where you can board a dolphin-watching boat from spring to fall. To the west of Cape Inubo-saki, at the southern coast of the Choshi-hanto Peninsula, there is the cliff Byobu-ga-ura, called the Dover of the Orient. It is an awesome scenic sight of 10-kilometer-long sheer precipices with heights of 40 to 50 meters.
