Kamogawa Seaworld Discover the world below the sea

Start an action-packed journey through Chiba's family-friendly attractions but heading to Kamogawa Seaworld , an amusement park home to over 11,000 marine creatures across 800 different species. The park features a restaurant, shopping outlets, a number of themed display zones, and hosts a variety of performances, a highlight being the killer whale live show.

1 hour 20 minutes

Take Free Shuttle bus to Awa-Kamogawa Station and change to JR Uchibo Line to Hamakanaya Station

Mt. Nokogiri See the views from "saw-tooth" mountain

Across the peninsula from Kamogawa Seaworld is Mt. Nokogiri . The 330-meter-high mountain is covered in a network of walking trails, some which lead to the Nihonji Temple, and others which offer magnificent views of the entire Tokyo Bay, Tokyo Skytree, the Miura Peninsula, Mt. Fuji, and Izu Oshima all framed by untamed, jagged cliffs. You'll also see thousands of jizo, small statues in individual poses set in the cliffside, guarding the walking paths.

After a few hours trekking, there's no better way to rest and recover than with a soak in Umibe no Yu Hot Spring, a five-minute drive north of the mountain. This indoor and outdoor onsen facility along the coast has outdoor baths offering sweeping views of the ocean.

Day 2

41 minutes

Take JR Uchibo Line to Sanukimachi Station and then change to Nitto Kotsu Bus to Mother Farm.

Mother Farm Rural experiences and bucolic European landscapes

Put aside some time to visit Mother Farm and Tokyo German Village. Mother Farm is a sprawling, 250-hectare farm-based amusement park, where guests can imagine what it's like to live on a farm by getting hands-on milking cows, riding horses, and making cheese and butter.

A little further up north is Tokyo German Village. Modeled after a picturesque rural German landscape, it features a number of attractions, including a Ferris wheel, children's zoo, a roller coaster and fruit picking just to name a few. The area is particularly beautiful in springtime when bright moss and pink flowers carpet the rolling hills.
