Top Things to Do
It can be intimidating and maybe a little bit frustrating trying to plan an itinerary when visiting a new city, especially a new city in a different country. Spend time in museums, at beaches, in the mountains, or even meditating in a temple. Look for gifts for loved ones back home or that perfect something to remember your trip. Immerse yourself in authentic Japanese cuisine and learn about the flavors and techniques used to create amazing dishes. Bounce has come up with a few lists to get you started and put you on the right track to a successful and relaxing getaway.
Spend time learning about the history of Japan while you explore all that Chiba has to offer. Whether you are touring interesting museums, visiting sacred temples, or spending time browsing through the shops, there is always something spectacular to grab your attention and send you on another adventure. Meditate while visiting one of the shrines throughout the city, visit the zoo and spend the day with the animals, or head indoors and discover the history and art that is Chiba.
Hoki Museum: Located in the neighborhood of Midori-ku near the Toki Station, the Hoki Museum houses over 300 art pieces dedicated to photorealistic paintings. Wander through and note the work of Noda Hiroshi, Taro Nakamoto, Morimoto Sosuke, and Tomohiko Yamanashi. After you have toured the museum, stop by the café for a drink and a quick snack.
Myokenhongu Chiba Shrine: Stroll around this tranquil shine where people come to pray and meditate. Sit quietly and listen to the stillness, drawing strength and peace from the simplistic design and décor. Unlike many shrines located throughout Japan, this shrine does not boast ornate furnishings, but rather a simple, utilitarian design.
Chiba Zoological Park: Spend an afternoon wandering through the zoo, watching the animals and keepers. Accessed by the Chiba Monorail, the zoo offers so many different things to see and do. Spend time in the reptile house or visit the larger safari animals. At every turn, there is something new and exciting to see and do. Don’t forget to stop by the gift shop before leaving for some fantastic souvenirs.
You may not have decided to visit Chiba for its fantastic shopping, but you will soon discover some of the best hidden gems of the city. Search for amazing one-of-a-kind souvenirs or simply window shop throughout some of the larger malls. Drop into the boutiques and quaint shops and browse the wares offered. No matter what you are searching for, you will be able to find it in Chiba.
Aeon Mall Makuhari Shintoshin: This family mall offers a bit of everything. You can shop the latest fashions, pick up unique accessories, keep up with the newest electronics, and even do some grocery shopping, all under one roof. Take a break from shopping and grab lunch at the food court or in one of the sit-down restaurants.
Mitsui Outlet Park Makuhari: While not your typical outlet mall, this mall offers several stores dedicated to Japanese brands that you may not be familiar with. Fantastic bargains await, and you can find merchandise that is not easily found anywhere but Japan. More commonly known stores such as Kate Spade, Lego, Crocs, and Coach are also located at this mall.
Mio: Located just across from the train station, Mio has become a busy retail hub filled with boutiques and shops offering everything from the latest fashions to everyday basic necessities.

Be sure to partake in the entire Chiba experience, including the local fare. Japanese cuisine in Japan is somewhat different than the Japanese fare you have tasted in the States. Sushi and sake in Chiba is indeed something you will not want to miss. Bring your appetite and your sense of adventure and get to know Chiba through the cuisine. If you happen to leave your sense of adventure at home, no worries, you can find fantastic international cuisine that you are more familiar such as Italian, American, French, and Mexican.
Sushi: You have not had sushi until you have eaten it while sitting in a restaurant in Chiba. Flavors mix together and explode on your tongue when you eat at Sakae Sushi. Try one of their specials such as the salmon stick sushi or akagi string sushi. Visit during lunch and take part in the rice cake service and enjoy a cup of fragrant coffee.
Steakhouses: Even Japan has its fair share of steakhouses complete with authentic steakhouse décor. Outback Steakhouse – Makuhariten is a popular place to enjoy dinner, and they serve the juiciest prime rib or roast beef in the city. You may need reservations if you are hoping to eat here on the weekends.
Barbeque: Authentic Japanese-style barbeque can be found at Makuhari Shintoshin located in the Toraji Aeon Mall. Friendly staff will put you at ease and make your dining experience enjoyable. Order one of the specials and enjoy a bowl of egg soup and rice along with your main entrée.
Convenient to the Met, which does not allow luggage at coat check. Very easy check in and check out process, with lovely people at the front!
This was so cool!!!! Great service, extremely easy to use, and totally affordable! I didn't know where I'd leave my luggage while we explored San Fran, so I easily Googled luggage storage and found this company. At first it was a little odd dropping my bag off at a chocolate store, but the lady at the register was able to immediately pull up my reservation without any problems and then she put a lock on my suitcase and gave me a card to get it back with. She pushed the bag to the back of their storage room and I came back about 6 hours later to pick it up. Great service, I will definitely be using this again when I travel!
Can’t believe I haven’t used this service until now. So easy & convenient. I 100% recommend.
