Chiba Prefecture > Welcome to Chiba
Update: November 17, 2023
Chiba is an internationalized prefecture which has been opened to the world through such international facilities as Narita International Airport, the gateway to Japan, Makuhari Messe, one of the most prominent convention centers in Asia, Kazusa DNA Research Institute, a world leader in cutting edge research, and Tokyo Disney Resort, whose two theme parks draw in 30 million patrons each year.
Chiba also has a strong industrial base, the Keiyo Coastline Industrial Belt, which stretches out along the bay area. Furthermore our highway system, including the Tokyo Bay Aqualine, connects Chiba with the greater metropolitan area as well as the whole of Japan.
0n the other hand, blessed with many beautiful natural areas surrounded by oceans and rivers that provide an abundance of fresh, delicious food, Chiba Prefecture is one of the leading producers of agricultural, forest, and fish products in Japan.
Additionally, 7 events will be held at Makuhari Messe, and surfing will be held at the Ichinomiya Tsurigasaki Beach during the Tokyo 2020 Olympic and Paralympic Games.
I'm shedding light on these treasures and the endless potential of Chiba Prefecture in order to show the whole country, and the whole world, the "Shining, Brilliant, and Energetic Chiba".
I would like to extend an invitation on behalf of 6.2 million Chiba citizens for you to come and see Chiba for yourself. We’re all waiting for you.
