Chiba Travel Guide: 57 reviews and 120 photos

Chiba ken is the largest ken (county/shire/state) in Japan and is right next to Tokyo. As you cross that border the price of everything drops -restaurants, housing and especially beer. It has reasonalbe facilities and as you head into the peninsular itself its quite beautiful. Generally people live here and work in Tokyo. Its worth considering using it as abase to knock down the price of you Tokyo visit.

Pros and Cons
  • Pros:Its cheaper than Tokyo to live, less English is spoken so you must use Nihongo, its got a variation of landscape including surf and the pacific ocean
  • Cons:Less English is spoken, the transport system is not as comprehensive as the city, night life is not a varied

    careful with the ni-hon go bud. Its, "totemo oishii tabemono kudasai" however, that is rather silly sounding. Try, 'O-makase". , "I leave it up to the chef" To say, "give me delicious food" would seem to be an insult to the chef wouldn't it?
