Boso Flower Line 房総フラワーライン
A road of blooms along the coast
Chiba is famous for its colorful blooming flowers in the spring, and the Boso Flower Line is the perfect place to see them. It's a 46-kilometer road that runs along the southern coast of the peninsula from Chikura to Tateyama. All year round, the road presents spectacular views on either side.
One of Japan's Top 100 Best Roads
Completed in 1966, the Line starts at the Tateyama City area at the southwestern corner of the Boso Peninsula
How to Get There
By car, cross Tokyo Bay using the Tokyo Wan Aqua-Line Expressway. At Kisarazu Junction, turn onto the Tateyama Expressway to the city of Tateyama. Get onto Prefectural Road 257.
At Tokyo Station, take a JR Sobu Line train to Chiba Station. Change to the JR Uchibo Line and get off at Chikura Station or Tateyama Station.
Along the side of the road, you'll find flower farms and parks where you can stop and enjoy the scenery. The Boso Flower Line is dotted with quaint little tourist towns that have places to eat and unique gift shopping.
Gorgeous flowers bloom in all seasons, but the best time to travel the Boso Flower Line is in the winter, when the nanohana are in bloom. When they're in bloom, you can see fields of brilliant, vivid yellow and orange on both sides of the road.
Boso Flower Line is close to other southern Chiba attractions, such as Nojimasaki Lighthouse and Okinoshima . You can make it part of your Boso trip. It's off the beaten path and never crowded, so cycling the Boso Flower Line can be a real treat.
