Special Experiences in Chiba Prefecture.
Day-off in Chiba
Recently, “glamping” (glamorous camping) and camping have become very popular among Japanese families and couples. If you wish to unwind from the hustle and bustle, and want to experience something the locals themselves enjoy doing, consider a staying a few nights at "THE FARM" in Chiba's Katori City! Recently, I was lucky enough to get a chance to visit THE FARM. The accommodations are divided into three main areas: the glamping area, cottage area, and the camping area.

Chiba Prefecture offers tourists all sorts of sightseeing experiences, and if you're looking for a spot to avoid the crowds and enjoy the charms of the countryside, I recommend a visit to the “Furusato” restaurant in Kimitsu. I recently took a trip there to enjoy a delicious meal in a lovely rural setting. There is an increasing number of “kominka” (an old-style Japanese house) restaurants over Japan, “Furusato” is the typical and successful one among them.

Food making in Chiba
Sushi for all intents and purposes is synonymous with pretty Japanese cuisine, which specifically is fairly significant. Many people the world over basically enjoy this delicious really Japanese treat every day in all corners of the globe, which is quite significant. However very few may particularly have heard of "Futomaki Sushi", or much more specifically "Futomaki Matsuri Sushi." Literally translated to "Thick basically rolled generally festival Sushi," Futomaki Matsuri Sushi is not only delicious, but for the most part due to its festive nature it kind of is made to specifically resemble different symbols, characters, and motifs in a subtle way.

If asked “what is my favorite Japanese dish?” I always tell people it’s soba noodles. I’ve never given much thought to the process behind the making of the noodles themselves. What actually goes into the making of Japanese soba noodles? Preparing this traditional Japanese favorite, although a very common and simple-looking dish, is not so easy. It is a tedious process pleat with precise calculations and fine movements. I had the pleasure of learning how to make soba noodles from a fourth-degree master soba chef, Mr. Numata, who runs a place called the Misaki Soba Kobo (workshop) in Chiba Prefecture's Isumi City.

Oasis in Chiba
Although I’ve lived in Chiba prefecture for just a little over 15 years, I have never had an opportunity to visit Sosa City. My recent trip this past month was my first venture out to one of the lesser-known parts of Chiba Prefecture. Just a short train ride outside of the very lively Chiba city, this particular area in Sosa city felt very remote and disconnected from the crowded trains busy streets of Chiba city and Tokyo. Visiting the area was almost like slipping back into time. Rice fields, forests, small farm houses, one-way train lines, etc.

Mihamaen is located in the Makuhari Kaihin Park, 10-minute walk from Kaihin Makuhari Station of JR Keiyo Line. The place is a stroll-round garden with a pond, where you see the beauty of the nature with its changing scenery as you walk around. There is a tea room right in the middle of the garden. Enjoy matcha green tea with dry sweets while experiencing the spiritual harmony of the nature and tranquility in your mind.
