Indulge in Japanese halal sweets, admire Tokyo Bay, and enjoy the Japanese tourism experience in the Muslim-friendly city of Chiba

Chiba City, Chiba Prefecture


Chiba Prefecture’s capital, Chiba City, is one of the Kanto region’s main seaports handling the highest volume of cargo in Japan. It’s centrally located between Narita Airport and Tokyo, making it an ideal detour for visitors on a trip to Tokyo! 


Chiba City has several Muslim-friendly hotels with prayer mats and Muslim-friendly breakfasts, such as the Maple Inn Makuhari Hotel, so Muslim visitors can travel in comfort. The city also boasts spectacular views from the Chiba Urban Monorail, also known as the longest hanging monorail ride, as recorded by Guinness World Records. Your ride on the monorail will make you feel as if you’re flying! 


For a more authentic experience, you can also visit Mihama-en for a Japanese tea ceremony. Relax and sip on pure Japanese tea served with Halal sweets (wagashi) while enjoying the incredible views of the garden.


How to get there


From Tokyo Station, take the JR Sobu Line to Chiba Station (about 40 minutes).
