About Chiba Prefecture
From beach activities and mountainous trekking to historic villages, Disney resorts and outlet shopping, Chiba has something for all.
Adjacent to Tokyo, Chiba is best known for being home to Japan’s two Disney parks, but the area overflows with natural beauty both inland and by the sea. Stretching 66 kilometers along Chiba’s coast is Kujukuri Beach, Japan’s longest stretch of sandy coastline, ideal for watersports. Deeper inland are a number of spacious parks and towering Mt. Nokogiri, with its “Hell Peek Point.” Chiba also has Japan’s main international airport, Narita, making it the country’s first entry point for most travelers.
Kisarazu, on the Boso Peninsula , boasts some unusual attractions. It’s the starting point of the Aqua Line, a highway that takes you under the bay. Hikers will love Mt. Nokogiri , one of Chiba’s highest mountains, where you can peek into the pits of hell. The area is home to one of Japan’s largest Buddhas, as well as one of the Tokyo area’s major outlet malls.
How to get to Kisarazu
The Kisarazu area is accessible by train from Tokyo, or the Aqua Line tunnel-bridge combination which traverses Tokyo Bay.
By train, Kisarazu and most of the area’s attractions are accessible via the Uchibo Line from Soga Station at the end of the JR Keiyo Line.
A more interesting way to visit is to take a bus trip on the Aqua Line, a highway that goes partially under Tokyo Bay, or the Tokyo Bay Ferry. Both depart from Kanagawa Prefecture on the west side of the bay.
About Kururi Station
Kururi Station (久留里駅, Kururi-eki) is a railway station operated by JR East’s Kururi Line located in Kimitsu, Chiba Prefecture Japan. It is 23.6 kilometers from the western terminus of the Kururi Line at Kisarazu Station.
Kururi Station was opened on December 28, 1912 as the original eastern terminal station for the Chiba Prefectural Railways Kururi Line. The line was nationalized into the Japanese Government Railways (JGR) on September 1, 1923. The line was extended to Kazusa-Kameyama on March 25, 1936. The JGR became the Japan National Railways (JNR) after World War II. The station was absorbed into the JR East network upon the privatization of the JNR on April 1, 1987.
About Kururi Castle
Kururi Castle (久留里城, Kururi-jō) is a Japanese castle located in Kimitsu, southern Chiba Prefecture, Japan. At the end of the Edo period, Kururi Castle was home to a branch of the Kuroda clan, daimyō of Kururi Domain. The castle was also known as Rain Castle (雨城, U-jō), after a legend that it rained twenty-one times during its construction, or, on average, once every three days.
Ōtaki (大多喜町, Ōtaki-machi) is a town located in Chiba Prefecture, Japan. The town is known for its association with Edo period general Honda Tadakatsu, and its prominent castle. As of December 2015, the town had an estimated population of 9,676, and a population density of 74.5 persons per km2. The total area the town is 129.87 square kilometres (50.14 sq mi), making it the largest of Chiba Prefecture’s towns and villages.
Ōtaki is a landlocked town in the center of the Bōsō Peninsula. The southwest area of Otaki is mountainous, with altitudes gradually lowering towards the northeast of the town. 70% of Ōtaki is covered by forest. The Isumi River flows through the town to the northeast, and in the western part of the town the Yōrō River flows to the north.
Ōtaki was settled in prehistoric times, as evidenced by the Jōmon period remains in Oikawa. In the Asuka period the Ōtaki region became part of Kazusa Province at the western end of the Tōkaidō region, which was formed as a result of the Taika Reform of 654. In the Sengoku period Ōtaki was established as a castle town, which successively controlled by different regional clans, most notably the Takeda clan and the Toki clan. The Ōtaki region ultimately came under the control of the powerful Awa Province-based Satomi clan in 1544.
