  • Right food and snacks. With island in Tokyo Bay, but the scenery is stunning. Use the Aqualine must stop. So there is room, use on driving fatigue.

  • I went 15:30 on Saturday. Free indeed was that while parking. That view was special, so nothing usually see the sea to see the broad sky. Around in the middle of Tokyo Bay, so round up and see land. And where I live is fun looking for landmarks, such as the sky. Departing Haneda flight changes affecting the landscape. I now felt the wonders of Japan's technology. Sunny days without wind and was not crowded.

  • This is the way to Kawasaki and Kisarazu umihotaru parking. Always down toll currently is very accessible and it is so crowded. Many restaurants, it is useful to break.

  • What a wonderful place to see sunset. The firsttimeI could see the such sunset like that. The plan went through the sky.
  • This place has spectacular views all around the bay from Tokyo prefecture, to Kanagawa and Chiba. It's absolutely breathtaking and a great midway stop between passing from prefecture to prefecture. We had lunch in the food court here (which could use a few more seats) and the food was great. I recommend the "Chi-ba don" (ちーば丼) which is so worth the ¥1200 for how much fresh ingredients is in it (fish, eel, sweet egg, clams, etc!). This place also will have any information you need for tourist and local destinations, and some in English, too. The only downfall (which could be because it was the weekend) is that once you get off the exit to get a parking spot, it can have LONG lines that take a while...also it's only accessible by car, no trains.
  • Excellent place to stop by and have a great panorama view of the sea. There are many restaurants, offering variety food.
  • An artificial island only reachable via 9km tunnel. Has good views, a food court and several shops. Worth a visit.
  • It is a huge resting area in the middle of Tokyo bay. It has a lot of shop and restaurant there. It almost likes large shopping malls (in a middle of the sea).
