Leisure Activities

In Chiba Prefecture, where the weather is mild even in winter, spring arrives a bit early, bringing the flowers with it. Starting with the cheery yellow of the nanohana in February, the prefecture is eventually covered with flowers of every color, with the vivid irises coming out in early summer.

The ocean that surrounds us also shows us different faces with each season, giving opportunities for fishing, surfing, and scuba diving, and refreshes our minds and bodies with a cool sea breeze.
