It was on TokyoWalker's list of the top ten winter illumination spots in the Kantō area, but getting there was something else.
We passed on the all-day bus tours via Kamogawa Sea World on the far side of the Bōsō Peninsula and settled for one half the price: via the Mitsui Outlets in just on the other end of the Aqualine tunnel and bridge. Approximately 70 minutes going; 55 minutes coming back.
The drawback was that we had to spend three hours at the shopping mall. The first hour we spent over a leisurely lunch in the food court. My choice was stewed pork over rice from Bairan (梅蘭), headquartered in Yokohama Chinatown. Best Chinese food I've had all month. Also the only.
Then I basked in the warm Sunshine, bought a heavily discounted baseball cap at GAP, and returned to the food court for a 3 pm snack.
We got to our final destination (TGV) just before dusk, so got to see Mt Fuji outlined in red and the lights as they came on.
I cannot say anything about the food and drink options because we saved the faux gingerbread village for last. Too bad because the short son-et-lumière performance was spectacular, the kind that takes several tries to properly photograph/video.
Ninety minutes was not enough time to see everything. I hope to go back next Xmas.

I went to Ichihara Elephant Kingdom in search of capybaras. What I found was tiny filthy cage after tiny filthy cage of neglected, miserable animals. Many of which had visible open sores. I can't believe a country as sophisticated as Japan allows facilities like this to operate. They kept heard animals such as sheep and seals in solitary confinement, and wild hogs in dirty cement cages with no sunlight.
Yes, they had capybaras you could interact with, but they had open sores on their feet and their teeth were in terrible condition. I should have known that a real animal park would never allow you to interact with animals like that.
I couldn't bring myself to stay for the elephant show. I got out of there as quickly as possible. The cost to just get there was about 9000 yen from Narita airport. That included 6 trains and 2 exorbitant 10 minute taxi rides each costing around 3000 yen.
If you want to see exotic animals, do yourself a favor and go to an actual animal park where they have humane facilities and some form of veterinary treatment for the animals they keep. I'm just disgusted with my whole experience.

Marine Field was great, and if I hadn't gone to the Seibu Dome I would have to say that it sets the standard for Japanese baseball. The seats are affordable, the commute is easy, and the games are fun!

The weather was pretty good when we visited. Cloudy yet windy... We thought it might rain so we decided to ride the family bicycle.. (Our kids Seating in front and me and hubby doing pedal.) it was 600 yen per lap (2.5km) we are able to go around the whole place.
We went to roller blade rink, in there a lot of slides and other outdoor activities for the kids and adults can enjoy too.
Lastly, we do fishing... We are able to get couple of goldfish but only able to take home 2 goldfish per kid since we paid 300 for each kid...
Whole day gone quickly but we are able to enjoy the nature together with our kids.. Next time wr want to do BBQ there since there is a specific place for that..
Definitely a perfect place to visit with the whole family.

Being a railway fan, this is one of the must tries if you are living in Tokyo. The Kominato Tetsudo - Railway provides a nostalgic ride along the Boso Peninsula in Chiba Prefecture. Connects the Goi station (JR Uchibo Line) to Kazusa-Nakano (Isumi Line).
The Railway uses the KiHA Diesel cars passing along the country side and stopping at many antique station buildings. It is a third party railway operation and offers scenic views along the Railway route. The railway route is approximately 40 Kilometers and the services are mostly 3 trains every 2 hours.

Zoo has all main animal a zoo should has (except cats, no tiger and lion). It is big zoo with lots of tree, very nice considering many other zoo in Tokyo and surrounding area. But the facility is getting old. Many thing doesn't work at the amusement park (part of the zoo).
Entrance fee is cheap, about 500 yen. A nice place to bring your kids. But be ready with old (they have the oldest zebra in Japan) animal and old facility.

I went to the Chiba Shrine for 'a prayer for the family safety'. There were some women wearing like kimonos in Chiba Shrine, and I bought a 'Omamori' and Omikuji. My Omikuji was 'Kichi' (good luck), It was so happy that I donated Yen here again. Now I am waiting a good luck...

The Takataki Lake and dam are located in Ichihara, Chiba Prefecture. It is easily accessible using the Takataki station on the Kominato Railway.
The Lake area is large, divided in 2 sections and is aligned with Cherry trees in some areas, offering wonderful views in spring time. The Takataki Dam is located on the left section of the lake close to the Ichihara City Hall.
The lake offers wonderful views of the surrounding areas on a clear sunny day.

This place is enjoyable for a relaxing and refreshing weekend stroll during spring and summer. There is not much activity one can do other than that.
