Chiba For the First Time
If you haven't been already, both Tokyo Disneyland and Tokyo Disney Sea are definitely worth checking out whether you are going as a family, a couple or with friends. It is often known that the more "mature" crowd would venture off to the "sea" from the "land". Given that alcohol is only served at Tokyo Disney Sea, it kind of makes sense why this trend would occur.
Venturing out further around Chiba Prefecture, Mt. Nokogiri (Nokogiriyama) is another place you must visit on the Boso Peninsula. On the Western side of this mountain lies the Nihon-ji Temple area where the largest pre-modern stone-carved Buddha in all of Japan at 31 meters high is located. At the top of the mountain, there is also a spectacular view where you can also get a glimpse of Mt. Fuji on a clear day. This mountain range was used widely during the Edo Period as a stone quarry, which is quite evident from the rock formations.
Not far from Mt. Nokogiri is Mother Farm or Mother Bokujyo, which is a great place for a nice getaway from the busy city life in Tokyo. Whether you are going here with a family or with friends, there is a little bit of everything offered at this park. Covering over 2.5 million acres of land, this theme park offers a variety of activities from milking cows, playing with small animals, picking seasonal vegetables, fruits and flowers, making various types of foods produced directly on the farm, small theme park rides, tours around the farm and some delicious restaurants. Definitely a perfect spot if the weather pans out for you.

Another interesting spot that may catch your interest is the German themed Doitsu Mura or German Village. Covering over 910 square meters, this theme park may be of interest for those who enjoy mini golf, archery, grass sledding, beautiful gardens, delicious German food and much more. This park also surprisingly offers one of the best Christmas illuminations in Japan.
There is so much more to this beautiful prefecture than just the Disney theme parks, so make sure to explore the surrounding areas and if you have any other places that you recommend for our fellow Odigoers to go, please leave a comment down below!
