Places of interest in Chiba
The Chiba leg of the Torch Relay begins in Kisarazu City’s “Umihotaru” — a floating parking lot in the middle of Tokyo Bay. The first day ends in Sammu, the second in Chiba and the third in Matsudo, with a celebration taking place at the end of each day.
Some of the sites the torch will visit on its journey across Chiba include: Makuhari Messe in the city of Chiba, a venue for many Olympic and Paralympic sports; Tsurigasaki Surfing Beach, the venue for Olympic surfing; the port of Choshi, boasting the highest volume of fish in Japan; Narita’s Sanrizuka Sakura-no-oka, with its famous airport; and the historical Mt. Naritasan Shinshoji Temple — a favourite of tourists visiting the region.
