Chiba Port Park 千葉ポートパーク
A lovely park by the bay
Chiba Port Park is a park by the bay with large open fields, trails for walking or running, and recreational activities. It's a great place to have a picnic, or just stroll around taking in views of Tokyo Bay.
How to Get There
A 10-minute walk from Chiba Minato Station on the Keiyo Line.
Free parking is available if you go by car.
A symbol of Chiba Harbor
The main feature of the park is Chiba Port Tower, a slim mirrored glass tower that rises above the park at 125 meters and overlooks Tokyo Bay. From the observation deck, you can see famous Tokyo sights like Tokyo Skytree , the Shinjuku skyscraper district, and Rainbow Bridge . On clear days, you can even see as far as Mt. Fuji .
One of Chiba Port Park's most popular attractions is its Water Plaza. This is a spacious play area that fills with cool water from the bay during the summertime for kids to play in.
Clam digging on the beach
The park also has a manmade beach right on the bay. The gentle waters make it an excellent place to wade in the water. One popular activity here is clam digging.
