The city boasts Japan’s longest man-made beach as well as verdant metropolitan parks and foothill villages, providing a balance between the sea and greenery that remind visitors of the proximity and abundance of nature. You can enjoy a wide variety of unique venues for unforgettable events, from parties in the sky on the Chiba Urban Monorail, -the world’s longest suspended monorail system, to receptions in the highly sophisticated neo-Renaissance atmosphere of Sayado Hall at the Chiba City Museum of Art.
