    I went to the CEATEC JAPAN exhibition. 5-6 minutes walk from Kaihin-Makuhari Station when it comes to the venue. Inside was overwhelming more widely. Away on the first day about 3 hours walking around, because I was tired. Also a nice feature you can view the booth IT will exhibit on the go I went there some time. Also tomorrow.

    Quite a large exhibition, attended Pop Spring 2017 here. The place was large enough to take all those who wanted to be close to performer. If you are going to a concert, take a light jacket which you can easily put on and off because it tends to get cold inside unless you are in the heart of the concert.

    Lovely large exhibition halls. Plenty of wide open spaces to soak up numbers. Close to station, shopping malls, outlets, food.

    Went for the Tokyo Auto Salon and it was amazing. The place is huge and not to be underestimated. Convenience stores inside so you don't have to pay a lot for food and drinks.

Where to stay in Chiba

The primary selection of accommodations in Chiba fans out from the city's central train station. In this tangle of streets you'll find good-quality, budget-friendly lodgings, including guesthouses and hostels. Expect more luxury by the water and where the streets get a little wider and newer, with grand hotels occupying commanding positions over the bay and along tree-lined boulevards. Alternatively, stay in Tokyo itself when exploring Chiba and the highlights of its prefecture.
