Rides, animals, barbecues, and ice cream make this a great place to take the kids

Mother Farm, or Mother Bokujo, is one of Chiba's most popular destinations, especially for kids. Located right in the center of the Boso Peninsula , it is a wide-open area full of animals, activities, and great views of the Boso Hills.

Quick Facts

At the top of the park's central hill sits a small amusement park

There are small roller coasters, a fun house, go-carts, and a cycle monorail that goes high above the park

How to Get There

Mother Farm is accessible by bus from Sanukimachi Station or Kimitsu Station.

From Sanukimachi Station, there is one bus every two hours on weekdays and hourly on weekends. From Kimitsu Station, there is one bus every two to three hours daily except on weekends (excluding winter), when buses depart every hour.

Mother Farm's flowers

Mother Farm is located on a mountainside overlooking hills and valleys. The park includes colorful flower fields and has the largest number of nanohana or rapeseed flowers in the Kanto region. They are typically in bloom from mid-February to mid-April.

Mother Farm's animals and activities

The park has a full barnyard of farm animals, including horses, sheep, goats, cows, alpacas and dogs. Kids love the farm's petting zoo, where they can play with and feed goats, pigs, rabbits and hamsters.

There are even farm activities, including fruit-picking year round, horseback riding, cheese- and butter-making, and more.

Welcome to the sheep show

The biggest event at the park is the sheep show, in which a real sheepherder from New Zealand teaches visitors about raising sheep in humorous Japanese and gives a shearing demonstration. There's also a sheep run, a duck parade, and a pig race.

Buses to help you get around

The farm is big, so ride one of the sightseeing buses to save time. Choose from the Wanwan Bus (Dog) or the Tonton Bus (Pig).
