ZOZO Marine Stadium

Reviewed By Acesouthpaw328

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!

Hoki Museum

Reviewed By Keizo - Kawasaki, Japan

Opened in November 2010, this museum features realistic paintings which looks like almost photos. The building itself has very extraordinary shape and the inside is very spacious and
we can walk down along the pictures such as flowers or beautiful ladies. There is no glass
over the paintings so that we can see the surface of them directly.It is far away from Tokyo and
not so many people. Only courageous foreigners should go there and you would not regret it.
The nearest Jr Station is Toke from where you take a taxi or a bus or walk.
I took a bus to go there and walk back to the station.

Chiba Zoological Park

Reviewed By Dian M - Tokyo, Japan

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.

Chiba Shrine

Reviewed By Jamok65 - Chiba Prefecture, Japan

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...

Showa no Mori Park

Reviewed By alexandra_w - Chiba, Japan

It's a park of Forests needing a serious maintenance.
I used to visit here often when I was five or so. It was a very fun place for kids of that age, that's true. I revisited there years ago and it was gross. There were tangles of bushy weeds all over, stinking like something's decomposing. They have unpaved walking roads surrounded by woods and tall bushes. At every turnaround, you can't see what's in front of you. On this road, you'll probably have mixed feelings of boredom and fear. Boredom, since there's nothing exciting, and fear -- you half expect a decomposing human corpse (murdered, perhaps?) popping out, out of nowhere.
Anyway, it's like 2-3 hrs drive from Tokyo. I don't really see why those people keep coming here. Tourists tend to clog our traffic and some of them are real jerks. Even if you have kids, kids nowadays have better places to go. When I was young, this park had a little bit more decent maintenance.
Oh, their parking fee is 600 jpy, even if you visit here just for 5 minutes. It's pretty expensive for this district. They have bathrooms, but I don't wanna even imagine using them myself.
Do you still wanna come here?

Mitsui Outlet Park Makuhari

Just in front of the station, about 30 minutes by train from Tokyo station; easily accessible by limousine bus from Narita and Haneda Airports! Stores / 140 stores approx.

Reviewed By yfylou - Kota Kinabalu, Malaysia

This Mitsui Outlet Park is modern with 2-story building +1 with many small shops inside where people can walk outside from store to store. A-site to D-site with connecting corridor. Various branded fashion goods are sold here but not cheap though depends on your country currency. Easy access to cafes and restaurants.

Chiba Park

Reviewed By SlyFox_TX - Montgomery, Texas

A spring or summer stroll through Chiba Park is a must stop for any seasonal visit to Chiba. Early spring brings the cherry blossoms to life. Late spring as illustrated by the photos attached to this review bring the lotus, iris and azaleas colors to full bloom.
The pond has boats for rent and a significant supply of carp, turtles an waterfowl. Be sure to make your way past the kids playground to check out the rose and peonies garden surrounded by ginkgo trees.
